Bear has a look at downtown Vancouver!

We see bears fairly regularly up here, but they don't usually make it downtown for Christmas shopping!! It is thought that this one hitched a lift on a garbage truck from around here.

I just watched this on the news, before leaving for work.
Yep you do live in a magic kingdom, I've seen squirrels in my neighbourhood ;)

My sister told me it made the news in Glasgow as well!

Not sure about the magic part, but I think it is a first, for a bear in downtown.

He must have hitched a ride in the garbage truck, as he would have been seen crossing either of the bridges or swimming over!

He has now been released back into the wild, fingers crossed, for his sake, he stays there.

Plenty of squirrels here if you need some more.:P

Hope he's safely back where he came from.

They kept him for a night up on the local bear sanctuary, then he was released further north. They are tagged after a first time, the hope is they won't return. Unfortunately once they have a taste for human food they often return. If that happens, he will most likely be killed as he then becomes a danger to humans.

Hope he stays put then!!
