Residents of a quiet residential Neighbourhood in Deseronto woke up this morning to an unwelcome street guest.
This young bear cub was scared out of a driveway on Maple Avenue and up a tree by a person leaving for work around 6:30am this morning. Residents called police who with the help of the Township blocked off the road to traffic. The Ministry of Natural Resources was called in but before they arrived the bear came down on it’s own–running into a wooded area behind the subdivision about 3 hours later at 9:30am this morning. Neighbours say they’re glad the incident ended without the bear getting hurt adding it was a morning full of excitement.
