A small black bear was spotted wandering around Steinbach Thursday afternoon.
Randy Unger, who lives on Westview Drive, was one of the first people to see the animal. He explains his unusual encounter.
“I walked out of my garage door to get to my truck and it was two feet from my garage door. I was quite surprised. So I opened the door to get into this truck, and the bear snorted so I slammed the door and it took off.”
RCMP were notified about the bear around 1:30pm. Anybody who sees it is asked to remain calm and avoid direct contact. The bear has most recently been seen heading past Timber Falls, possibly making its way out of town.
