Jaywalking Bear Pauses to Poop on Road
Occurred on May 19, 2022 / Whistler, British Columbia, Canada
Info from Licensor: "I was on my way to go snowboarding at Blackcomb Mountain in Whistler and pulled up behind another car stopped at a red light at one of the main intersections next to the main village of Whistler. I saw this bear start to walk across the road on my left and when the light turned green, the car in front of me drove away, which confused the bear a little bit, and he looked at me as if wondering what my next move was. I decided to stay put and let him cross the road - since pedestrians have the right of way after all! I grabbed my camera to film him walking across the intersection and then he decided to leave a little surprise on the way. After he ducked under the fence, I drove over to Blackcomb and proceeded to have an epic day of snowboarding with a huge smile on my face! I've lived in Whistler for over 20 years, and although we see bears all the time in the spring, I have never seen a bear cross at a set of traffic lights like that."
