Police said to be aware of the area between the university on W. 5th Street and S. Oak., extending south to the Wildwood Zoo and north to the tracks. Residents have spotted the bear at the 1500 block of Arlington Street and the area of W. 11th Street and S. Adams Ave.

Police advise residents in that area to bring in bird feeders and other sources of food so that the bear moves on. Bears typically avoid humans.

A bear was similarly spotted last April in the same area and caught on a trail camera:
