Un ourson et sa maman capturés à Gatineau

A bear cub and his mother who were likely sleeping in a tree in the heart of a residential district have been captured by the authorities, on Friday morning, in the Aylmer sector.

The spokesperson of the police Department of the City of Gatineau (SPVG), the officer Isabelle Vachon, indicated that a call was received to 3 o’clock, in the night from Thursday to Friday, to signal the presence of a bear and his boy, who had climbed a tree in front of a private property of the street of the Cedars, not far from the forest.

Monitoring has been ensured until wildlife officers can be present on the spot, around 7 am. Still perched in the tree, the beasts have been mastered with a tranquilizer in order to be transported in their natural habitat, said the officer Vachon.
