Colorado Parks and Wildlife Relocates Black Bear Spotted near Fort Collins Apartments [WATCH]
Lately, the wildlife seems to be out and about with many moose and bear sightings around Fort Collins.
However, this time a small young male bear was nearly 60 pounds and was spotted in Fort Collins near the Social West apartments on City Park Ave.
The bystander, Jennifer Hartmeier-Haggard, said that animal control was been "notified and said they’ve been tracking it, hoping he finds his way out of the city". The bear was heading west.
Hartmeier-Haggard said this in the Facebook post:
"They won’t intervene unless he is impeding traffic or cornered and agitated. Hopefully he’ll make it home soon."
Colorado Parks and Wildlife remind us to never feed wildlife and to remain 50 feet away at all times. They were about to safely relocate the bear to a "more appropriate bear habitat".
