Polite encounter with bear

Canadians are known for being polite, and one man extended those pleasantries to a trio of bears that were lounging in his yard.

When Jordan Cote heard his tenant’s dog barking outside last week, he walked out onto his deck to find a black bear with two young cubs just metres away.

“I didn’t even realize what was going on until I walked around the corner and the two cubs were attached to the mama bear’s leg,” Cote told CTV Vancouver. “(The dog) didn’t leave the deck area and the bears never approached her. They kept their distance.”

While recording the encounter, Cote politely asked the bruins to leave the property.

“I need you guys to go,” Cote can be heard saying to the unwanted visitors in his video, followed by a “thank you” when the bears begin to turn around.

“I hope you enjoyed my yard,” he continues. “Have a good day.”
