Scouts raise cash to replace tents trashed by curious bear

Bear trashes Scouts' tents

A Richmond scout group has raised $1,300 to buy new tents after their campsite was attacked by a black bear.

The Sea Dragon Sea Scout group lost their tents after a black bear attacked and destroyed them while they were on an exercise at Mount Seymour Provincial Park during the Thanksgiving long weekend.

“Luckily, all of the scouts were in the cabin at the time and everyone was safe,” Heidi Suen said on a GoFundMe page created to help fund the purchase.

“We go camping (three to four) times a year, and these tents are essential in every camp.”

The scout group is part of Scouts Canada and the World Scout Organization.
