The Canadian Press, 06 Sep, 2018
  • Bear Roaming Downtown Ottawa Neighbourhood Has Been Tranquilized: Police
Ottawa police says a bear that roamed one of downtown Ottawa's busiest neighbourhoods on Thursday morning is on its way out of the city.
 
 
Const. Amy Gagnon says the bear was first reported in the ByWard Market shortly before 3:30 a.m.
 
 
Police established a perimeter around the animal and shut down a block of the market as conservation officers tried to tranquilize it.
 
 
Gagnon says they succeeded shortly after 9 a.m. and the bear will soon be taken out of the city.
 
 
She says no one has been injured and the bear appears to be in good health.
