A bear spotted in an Orillia neighbourhood prompted a hold-and-secure state at a nearby high school on Monday afternoon.
The bear was spied near Orillia Secondary School around 1:30 p.m. Monday and the school was put in a precautionary state as officials moved in to deal with the bear.
By mid-afternoon, police confirmed that the Ministry of Natural Resources was in place to deal with not one, but two bears. The OPP said Natural Resources officers were working to move a mother bear and her cub to a more safe and suitable location.
The hold-and-secure was lifted at Orillia Secondary at just before 4 p.m. according to the Simcoe County District School Board.
