A little gosling cannot outrun the bear.
Warning: Some people may find the video disturbing.
Several people had a little more excitement than usual on Central Park’s pitch and putt this weekend.
A video on Reddit shows a black bear storming onto the track and chasing a group of Canada geese by a group of people. As the bear runs through the area, people disperse, although the bear appears to be intent on one goose, which appears to be a gosling.
The video ends when the bear catches him.
The video was shot over the Canada Day long weekend at the popular Burnaby Park, which borders Vancouver. There are no reports of anyone being attacked or injured by the bear while it was in the area.
A second video appears to show the same bear around the same time in Central Park, near Patterson Station. This video was taken on July 2, around 2:30 p.m., according to Sebastian Plusa, who posted it online.
A group of people follow the bear in the park from a distance.
Commenters on the video online commented in amazement at just how deep the city went. Central Park is quite far from large wooded areas that bears prefer. Burnaby Lake Park is less than 3 miles from Central Park but is also disconnected from large wooded areas.
Vancouver is amazing has contacted the Department of the Environment to confirm whether the bear has been sedated and removed from the area.
