Residents of an East Vancouver neighbourhood had an unexpected visitor on Friday morning.

Just after 6 am, a bear was seen wandering in the area of East Hastings and Renfrew Street.


The young bear then “concealed itself in a tree,”  in the 2900 block of East Pender Street, said the VPD in a release.

Conservation officers were called in and tranquilized the bear, which will now be safely relocated outside of the city.
