The kids of Sicamous have spoken, and they like bears more than owls and raccoons. But not by much.

A total of 81 votes were cast in the District of Sicamous’ poll asking the town’s youngsters which animal they wanted to see carved out of a tree stump on Main Street.

Of the votes children cast, 32 were for a bear to be carved, 28 were for an owl and 21 were for a raccoon. The results were announced via the district’s social media on July 31.

The carving, which will be done by local chainsaw artist Mike Ormondy, will take place on August 2 at 417 Main Street. The public is welcome to drop by any time after 1 p.m.
