Woman gets close to bear on high­way

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ATLANTIC -

LABRADOR CITY, N.L. — A woman driv­ing through Labrador had a close en­counter with a cu­ri­ous bear who ap­pears to be mak­ing the rounds in the area.

Lisa Baikie was driv­ing on route 500 from Labrador City to Goose Bay on Sun­day when she no­ticed a bear on the side of the road.

She pulled over to take pic­tures of the an­i­mal and show her chil­dren, when the bear walked up to the pas­sen­ger side of her car and popped up against the win­dow. A video she took shows the bear — swarmed by mos­qui­toes ± star­ing di­rectly into the car and sniff­ing at the win­dow be­fore walk­ing around to the back. Baikie says she was there for about 10 min­utes be­fore leav­ing, with the bear re­main­ing on the road as it watched her drive away. On her Face­book page, peo­ple com­mented that they had seen a sim­i­lar look­ing bear in the same area.
