Gunhild Palulis snapped this photo of a mama bear and two cubs ambling through the neighbourhood around 13th Avenue in the Sagebrush area, near downtown.
The mama bear, who sports a white patch on her chest, and her kids were spotted on Sunday afternoon (Sept. 26) just before 4 p.m.
Bear sightings are increasing as fall approaches, including a bruin downtown that prompted the city to close a portion of Rivers Trail until the animal had moved along.
If you come across a bear or other wildlife in the city, call the BC Conservation Officer reporting Line at 1-877-952-7277.
