Bear in Lions Park chomping on Cheerios in baby buggy
A conservation officer was searching for a particularly curious bear who discovered a treasure trove of snacks in a baby stroller at Lions Park Monday afternoon.
Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung said police received several calls Tuesday about a bear in the Lions Park and PoCo Traboulay Trail area but "it was just a bear doing normal bear things" and no response was required.
At about 3 p.m., however, the bear took an interest in the crumbs left behind in a baby stroller.
"Fortunately the stroller was empty because the family was playing some distance away," Chung said. The bear eventually wandered off.
Chung said police and the conservation officer searched for the bear but were unable to locate it.
Conservation officer Sgt. Todd Hunter said a trap was set Monday and officers were back at the park to look for it on Tuesday.
