COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- A viewer spotted a bear in a tree at the Ave Maria University School of Law in the Vineyards today.
The bear is still in the tree. He came down, but went right back up when he saw people standing around. FWC says that's a good sign, since a bear that is afraid of people will not have to be euthanized.
FWC wants the public to keep their distance from the bear and the tree, and also, to keep their pets away from the area.
An FWC officer is on the scene.
