Bear hitches ride atop Vancouver, BC garbage truck
Conservation officers tranquillized and removed a black bear beleived to be about 18 months old found riding atop a garbage truck in downtown Vancouver, BC on Monday afternoon. It is believed the bear hitched a ride from North Vancouver, where the truck was doing pick-ups earlier in the day, said conservation officer Alex Desjardins. “Initially I had a hard time believing it,” said Desjardins. “The dispatcher said, ‘It’s not April Fools.’” Vancouver Sun.
