Bear Scare In Downtown Vancouver
Folks out east have always thought of Vancouver as the Wild West. Nestled in the raw beauty of snow-capped mountains, the Pacific Ocean and untamed forests, supernatural British Columbia has a reputation for being rather cozy with the wilderness.
Having a black bear wander around the downtown core on Monday certainly reinforces that stereotype.
The big guy jumped into a dump truck on Tuesday and went for a little ride around the city. It took city workers by surprise, but luckily no one was harmed as a result of the little joyride.
The bear was returned to the wild on Wednesday.
