COVID-19 pandemic no match for Peel spirit as 'bear hunt' sees windows filled with toys

There might be unusual guests peering out of windows as you step outside for some fresh air today.

The latest movement to lift spirits amid the overbearing COVID-19 pandemic is a 'bear hunt'.

People around the world have started putting bears in their windows so families with children in self isolation can go on a bear hunt during their daily walk.

It's a simple enough process: pop toy bears in your window sills, facing outwards, for people to spot on their walks around the neighbourhood.

Peel residents have joined in with locals from suburbs including Halls Head, Dawesville, Ravenswood, Meadow Springs, Mandurah, Lakelands, Greenfields, Singleton, Wannanup and Herron putting bears in their windows.

On your next walk look out for these bears and join the movement by putting your own teddy in the window.
