Stanley Mission RCMP are advising local residents to use caution after a bear entered a residence on Sunday night.

Police say the bear gained entry to a home in the 1700 block of Settee Street by pushing out a portable air conditioner.

One of the residents was taken to a local medical clinic after sustaining injuries exiting the residence.

The bear exited the home and ran into nearby woods.

Conservation officers have placed a trap near where the bear was last seen.

Anyone who sees local bear activity is asked to contact RCMP or the Ministry of Environment.
