RANCHO CUCAMONGA , Calif., May 18 (UPI) -- Police responded to calls about a loose bear roaming the streets of Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. on Wednesday morning.
Rancho Cucamonga police department tweeted video captured by an officer showing a black bear walking along a nearby sidewalk.
The presence of the bear prompted Vineyard Junior High School and Highland Avenue Christian School, located about a mile apart from each other, to enter a lockdown beginning at around 8:15 a.m.
Police later shared a photo of the bear in a tree reported that Department of Fish and Wildlife officers had reported to the scene in hopes of bringing it down safely.
"The black bear is corralled in a tree near Hermosa/Highland. Dept. of Fish and Wildlife will attempt to relocate," they wrote.
