SUDBURY, Ontario, June 11 (UPI) -- Police in Sudbury, Ontario, are urging people to stay away from wild animals after two incidents involving bear cubs were reported last weekend.

On Saturday, police responded to a report that someone had tied down a cub in the parking lot of a credit union, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported.

An unknown suspect tied the animal to a telephone cable ground wire, then drove off in a red sport utility vehicle. Witnesses said the suspect may have suffered a significant injury.

On Sunday, Sudbury police received a complaint that a group of as many as five kids chased a bear cub with hockey sticks.

Police said people should be cautious when bear cubs are around, because adult bears are usually nearby. Police also urged parents to speak with their children about the dangers of going near wild animals.
