Bear hitches a ride on Vancouver rubbish truck


Bystanders were left bemused by the sight of a bear in a rubbish truck in the centre of Vancouver.

The British Columbia Conservation Officer Service believes the bear began its journey in North Vancouver earlier in the day.

The bear was tranquilised and caught in a tarpaulin as it fell from the truck. It was later taken to a rural area away north of the city.
