Dead po­lar bear washes up in Bris­tol’s Hope

A re­cent walk through Bris­tol’s Hope gave one res­i­dent a sight she wasn’t quite pre­pared for.

Ann Ped­dle of Bris­tol’s Hope was out for a morn­ing walk last week when she came across the car­cass of a po­lar bear that had washed ashore. The car­cass had drifted be­tween the rocks near the wharf in Bris­tol’s Hope, ac­cord­ing to Ped­dle.

Ped­dle took some quick pho­tos of the bear to post to so­cial me­dia be­fore con­tact­ing the wildlife depart­ment at around 8:30 a.m.

Ped­dle told The Com­pass she’s seen a lot of things on her morn­ing walks, but never any­thing quite like this.

Mem­bers of the wildlife divi­sion of the Depart­ment of Fish­eries, Forestry, and Agri­foods ar­rived shortly af­ter Ped­dle’s call to re­move the bear, with the help of Ped­dle’s hus­band, Ch­es­ley.
