CNN PRODUCER NOTE newschaser says there has been a rise in black bear sightings in the Riverview, New Brunswick area. He shot this video on June 16 of a black bear cub in search of its mother. Nearby, women were walking their dogs, completely unaware that there was a bear in the vicinity. He says the bear sightings all started on June 14, when a bear cub was shot by local police at night. After the shooting of the cub, people within the area expressed outrage, according to Ray. 'The public is very against this new protocol of shooting bears. There are live traps and tranquilizers that they can use,' he says. Ray has filmed a variety of wildlife such as moose and deer, but says he never filmed a bear, especially so close to town. 'Our city is in a boom and all these residential areas are being built in the wildlife area, it seems like the wildlife is sticking around,' he says.
