A male bear was struck and killed by a vehicle on Capilano Road, according to a social media post by the North Shore Black Bear Society.
The society said the District of North Vancouver Streets crew attended to the bear after it was reported by pedestrians.
The district staff attended promptly and removed the bear with great care and respect, said Christine Miller, the president of the society.
“This is a tragic incident but the staff removed the bear with the respect that we appreciate,” she noted.
“Every year on the North Shore bears are killed on our roads. When we leave bear attractants around our properties we increase the chances of bears being in urban areas, where they can be severely injured, orphaned or killed by cars,” the society said.
This is a reminder to slow down and watch for wildlife, the society added.
