VANCOUVER – A little bear caused a big reaction when it showed up in downtown Vancouver on Monday.
The black bear cub got caught in a garbage truck that had picked up a load in North Vancouver before driving to Vancouver.
Police and conservation officers were called when the bear was spotted on top of the truck, which had stopped in a busy area near the city’s main post office and the Queen Elizabeth Theatre.
The cub was tranquilized and taken away to be released back into the wild.
The garbage truck driver says he’s happy the bear was saved.
