Parks Canada says it has successfully relocated a small black bear that has been lingering around roadsides and being fed by the public in Terra Nova National Park.  

The bear has been moved to an area between the national park and Gander, far away from communities, cabins and major roadways.

Parks Canada officials say it's the same young bear that was recently photographed with an RCMP officer in the park.

Wildlife officials said because the animal has been relocated at such a young age, it will likely return to natural ways of surviving in the wild.

Parks officials are urging people not to feed the bears – no matter how cute – as they can become dangerous after they have become dependent on people.
