It appears a bear involved in an attack on a Maple Ridge woman has been caught.
Inspector Murray Smith with the B.C. Conservation Service says the mother bear was caught Thursday morning, along with her three cubs.
“The bears will be assessed by staff as to their health, and the determination will be made as to the next steps for how these bears will be dealt with.”
As for the 69-year-old woman…
“The female black bear – the mother – ran over the woman on the deck, giving her a laceration on her face…”
She was treated in hospital Wednesday night.
It happened at around 8:30 on 287th near 98th Avenue at the woman’s home in Maple Ridge.
