Black bear on the run in South Vancouver

A black bear has been spotted near 49th Avenue and Tyne Avenue, Vancouver police have confirmed.

A conservation officer is on the scene. The neighbourhood is close to Burnaby's Central Park.

It is not unusual to see bears in Metro Vancouver neighbourhoods at this time of year, but it is rare to see them in Vancouver itself.
