THUNDER BAY – Thunder Bay Police Service officers were dispatched at 4:25 pm on August 20, 2018, to the area of Hull Avenue on a report of a large bear in the area. Officers were unable to locate the bear when they arrived on scene.

Multiple calls were received just before 5:00 pm of a bear in the Cox Crescent and Crescent Avenue area. The bear was finally located by officers up a tree near the bike path off Hinton Avenue and Blanchard Street.

Officers determined the bear to be aggressive and contact the MNR for assistance. The MNR conservation officers arrived around 6:30 pm and sedated the bear for transportation and relocation outside the city limits.
