Bear spotted up a tree in southwest Calgary
Police were on scene Saturday morning in southwest Calgary after a bear was spotted up a tree. By 10 a.m., Fish and Wildlife instructed police officers to stand down as the bear had climbed down and departed.
Signs were posted advising the public that two bears were in the area.
The area in question is just west of a parking lot west of 37 Street S.W. as you enter the Weaselhead Flats at 37 Street S.W. and 66 Avenue S.W.
It's not clear if it was two different bears, or the same one.
Anyone who comes across a bear is advised to back away slowly - and once in a safe place, contact Alberta Fish and Wildlife.
