A black bear cub was found dead in New York City’s Central Park this morning, police said.

The 3-foot-long black bear cub was discovered by a dog walker, who alerted a Central Park Conservancy worker, police said.

Police are currently investigating the bear cub came to be in the park at all. It is not yet clear whether the bear’s body was dumped there, or if the cub wandered into the park while still alive.

The black bear’s body shows signs of trauma, police said, noting a necropsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.

“The news that a dead black bear cub was found in Central Park is beyond upsetting,” Elizabeth Kaledin, a spokeswoman for the Central Park Conservancy, said in a statement. “Whenever any wildlife is harmed or injured we at the Conservancy are upset and alarmed. Black bears are not native to Central Park and there are no black bears kept at the Central Park Zoo so this is a highly unusual situation.”

My Reflection

My Reflection

This site is a tribute to Buddhism. Buddhism has given me a tremendous inspiration to be who and where I am today. Although I came to America at a very young age, however, I never once forget who I am and where I came from. One thing I know for sure is I was born as a Buddhist, live as a Buddhist and will leave this earth as a Buddhist. I do not believe in superstition. I only believe in karma.

Tipitaka: The pali canon (Readings in Theravada Buddhism). A vast body of literature in English translation the texts add up to several thousand printed pages. Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
