OTTAWA – High population density is a feature of most Group of Seven capitals — but Ottawa stands out among its international peers these days with an unusual demographic situation: a sudden influx of bears.

From a human’s perspective, the bears have been getting into mischief. Locals have seen them wandering along leafy residential streets, nosing through backyard compost containers and one was even spotted rambling the alleys of Ottawa’s touristy ByWard Market.
Many of the wayward animals, including the one affectionately nicknamed “ByWard Bear,” were seen or scooped up within a few kilometres of Parliament Hill.
