According to the Huff Post, the Bear that was “right here” in Toronto on Thursday morning turned out to be a rather large dog, City News Toronto reported.
“I was actually right here and the bear was standing right there,”
the caller, cab driver Mohammed Naim, told the news outlet. Naim, whose cab became stuck in the snow in Markham after dropping a passenger off, locked his doors for help when he saw the large, black, furry beast outside of his vehicle.
Investigators eventually found that the animal Naim spotted just a big friendly dog who belongs to the father-in-law of the man Naim had just dropped off at home.
Coincidentally, the 150-pound Newfoundland is named “Bear.”
