UPDATE: Bear Spotted Again Outside Valour School in Petawawa

A bear cub that gave students and staff at Petawawa’s Valour School an unusual ending to their day yesterday has been spotted again this morning.

Staff and students were kept inside the building yesterday under a “shelter in place” after the bear was spotted in a tree outside the school, and special measures were taken during dismissal time to ensure everyone got out and got home safely.

School officials tweeted a picture this morning, reporting that the bear has once again been spotted in a tree outside the school.

Officials are asking everyone to use the front entrance only at Valour today, and plans are in place to keep everyone inside during recess while the bear's movement is monitored.

We'll have more on this story as we get new information.
