Bear at door Canada

Bear at door: Canadian postman has fair excuse for failing to deliver parcel

Sometimes, the postman has a valid excuse for failing to deliver your parcel.

That’s particularly the case in Canada, where a postman has to dodge all manner of wild fauna to reach the front door — moose, deer, and apparently, even the occasional bear.

Matthew Fane, who lives in the Vancouver area, found a note from the postman in his letter box recently. His package hadn’t been delivered because, as the note said, there was a bear in the way.

Mr. Fane shared a photo of the note on Twitter, because he thought it was funny. Canada Post, which seems to take customer service rather seriously, replied to him, offering to investigate the failed delivery. He didn’t think that was necessary.

Now another photo has emerged - one supposedly taken by the postman itself. It shows the bear in question hanging out in Mr. Fane’s driveway.

In case you’re wondering, Mr. Fane’s letterbox is “up the street” from his front door, so the postman didn’t have to dodge any claws while leaving the note.
