Bear perches in pear tree

CHILLIWACK, B.C.—A yearling black bear has settled into a tree in Chilliwack, B.C. and won’t budge.

Residents of the Fraser Valley community have alerted conservation officers after spotting the bear high in the branches of a pear tree about 100 km east of Vancouver.

The little bruin is believed to have been in the tree for several weeks—munching on the abundance of fruit.
