This bear was spotted by Salmon Arm resident Gerri Kiy about noon on Monday, Aug. 28. It crossed 20th Street NE where it hopped into a pond in the vicinity of the Park Ridge development and turned the fountain into its own personal drinking fountain.

Then it swam out and walked down a nearby trail.
