Kamloops RCMP Const. Thorbjorn Larsen keeps in contact with fellow RCMP officers and conservation officers searching the beach area between Riverside Park and the Overlander Bridge Tuesday afternoon for a black bear. Police with guns drawn were chasing the bear for hours and left the bear after it climbed a tree in brush under the Overlanders Bridge. The bear was on the move at about 6 p.m. and police were following it east through Pioneer Park.
