A bear that was spotted near the off leash dog park in New Glasgow has been caught.

The bear was trapped  in a live trap by DNR, said spokesman Bruce Nunn.

The bear was removed from the area.

The Town of New Glasgow had been told about the bear by a resident who saw it at the Off Leash Dog Park, located across the street from the former John Brother MacDonald Stadium.

While they try to relocate bears if possible, Nunn said sometimes they are forced to euthanize the bear.
