Mythical Bears

Ryerson Bear (Ursus Ryersonius)

Attention – This bear is now extinct.

There have been rumours that there is a bear roaming the Ryerson campus. The bear is very shy and only very patient people might be able to spot the bear roaming the campus during the night.

This is a rare photo of the Ryerson bear. It is not 100% clear how the bear got the Ryerson colours onto his fur. It might be possible that extensive exposure to the Ryerson logo caused this type of mimicry so the bear would blend in better to the campus environment.

If you happen to catch a glimpse of the Ryerson bear, please share your photo and add it to this chapter.
