Reports of a bear wandering in downtown Colorado Springs had police and wildlife officers on the lookout.

The bear was reportedly sighted near the courthouse in downtown Colorado Springs Monday morning. An officer in the downtown area told 11 News the bear was last seen going into a wooded area near Boulder and Cascade, and was not seen again.

A bear was also sighted near Pleasant View Middle School in Pueblo, prompting the school to go on lockout for about 20 minutes until the bear wandered to another area.
