MESA, Ariz. (AP) — Wildlife officials are searching for a bear that was spotted in a suburban Phoenix neighborhood.
The Arizona Game and Fish Department says it received reports Wednesday night of a bear at a Mesa country club.
The department shared video on its Facebook page Thursday of a bear walking along the sidewalk of a residential area.
The agency says the bear appears to be juvenile, has not shown any aggression and seems to be steering clear of people.
