“Bear-y” Good News!

The Byward Market was abuzz with news this morning that a bear had found its way into the area.  Ottawa Police officers were initially called after 3 a.m.   For several hours the bear kept emergency crews busy, and an area was cordoned off bordered by Parent, Dalhousie, Murray, and St. Patrick.  NCC conservation officers were called in and safely tranquilized the bear after it had climbed up a tree.  The bear was then brought down safely and transported in a special vehicle to its natural habitat. As events unfolded this morning, a Twitter page @bywardbear was created, and quickly racked up close to 1200 followers. (local files)
