article imageBlack bear with blue head spotted in Canada

Mission City - Recently, a black bear was spotted in Mission, B.C., but it didn't look like your average bear. This is because it was sporting a blue head.
Aaron Smith was driving along Highway 7 on Tuesday and he came across a female bear and her cub. He decided that he wanted to take a closer look, so he pulled over.
Smith said that sighting was odd because the bear's head was very blue. The bear was dubbed "Blue Beary" by Smith and his colleagues.
As for how the bear ended up with a blue head, nobody is really sure, but a few people have come up with some theories. Some have suggested that the bear got its head stuck inside a toilet (port-a-potty) that was treated with colored liquid.
Some conservation officers believe that the bear got his head into a can of paint, and one officer pointed out that there was a clear line on the bear's neck of a saturation of blue, and that is why it looked as if the bear dipped his head into something.
Regional staff were made aware of the bear, but they don't have any plans to track it. They also don't plan on trying to clean the paint off of its face.
Greig Beithel, spokesperson for the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, said that the bear didn't appear to be in distress, so no action will be taken. Beithel added that eventually the paint will wear off as the hair grows and replaces itself.
