There was a rare sighting in a Vancouver neighbourhood on Friday morning.

A young black bear was spotted hanging out in a tree along East Pender Street, near Renfrew Street and the PNE.

The VPD says conservation officers were called in and tranquilized the bear, which will be safely relocated outside the city.

Officers told Global News the bear is a year-and-a-half old and has been abandoned by his mother.

The VPD says Jellystone Park has not been ruled out as new home for the bear.
