A young bear separated from its mother and lost in north Nanaimo last week was captured over the weekend.
Police were called Thursday when the bear was seen foraging for apples and other morsels in backyards on Dover Road.
Several Mounties coaxed the bear with apples and tried to catch it blankets to transport it back into the woods after attempts to get a conservation officer to attend failed.
