Royal Roads closes garden after campus bear sightings


Royal Roads University’s gardens temporarily closed last week after a black bear was spotted on campus. Campus security saw the bear walking down a trail towards the south end of the campus on Thursday evening. University spokesperson Maddy Gareau noted that a bear that was seen on Friday is likely the same one that was seen on Thursday. “We’re waiting for it to head out,” said Gareau. The bear is being monitored by conservation officers, who are waiting to set a trap in an appropriate location. The gardens reopened on Saturday after no further bear sightings were reported.
