Talk about reinforcing stereotypes — Canada is so wild, even our universities have bears hanging around! 

Simon Fraser University posted this Facebook photo of a black bear posing near the school's sign on Burnaby Mountain on Monday.

Cue the puns. 

Meanwhile another asked if the bear was eligible for scholarships.
