I just wanted to thank the four or five motorists who were travelling eastbound on Como Lake Avenue at about 4:40 p.m. last Friday.

I was jogging westbound along the south side of the street just east of the Seymour Drive intersection. A car slowed down and the driver yelled something out of the window. A few more cars honked. By the time my brain was registering what the first driver had been yelling, I saw the next car’s driver urgently pointing to the east. 

By then I was fully cognizant of their warning: There was a bear up ahead of me. Luckily there was a break in the traffic and I quickly crossed to the north side of the street and I also did a 180 degree turn back in the direction I had come from. 

Thank you to the motorists who warned me so that I didn’t literally run into a bear.

E. Perry, 

Coquitlam
