With the seemingly young cub in a tree by itself, some believed the mother bear couldn’t be far away, while others said the momma was nowhere to be seen

While encounters between bears and humans don’t always end well, this particular encounter was not one of those times.
“The bear left on its own, no issues,” a Coquitlam RCMP spokesperson told Daily Hive.
Sometimes, when it comes to Mother Nature, you just have to grin and “bear” it.
