A black bear was seen wandering around Glenwood Springs Elementary School early Saturday. Residents of the area noticed the bear digging through trash and roaming the alleys before contacting local authorities. Mike Porras, public information officer for Colorado Parks and Wildlife for Northwest Region, told the Post Independent that the bear was tranquilized and relocated 50 to 100 miles away from Glenwood. Parks and Wildlife officials stress the importance of securing all sources of food, including trash bins, barbecues and bird feeders. The fine for not properly securing trash bins in Glenwood Springs ranges from $50-$500.
