Bear Causes Excitement In San Luis Obispo

Posted on Friday, September 20, 2013 3:30pm

A bear has been creating a lot of excitement in San Luis Obispo County.

The roughly 300 pound black bear was first spotted near the Sierra Vista Medical Center last night.

Then, this morning it was seen on the Cal Poly San Luis Obispo campus.

San Luis Obispo Police, and state Fish and Wildlife officials finally tracked it down today.

They tried to tranquilize it, but it was unclear as to whether the bear was actually hit, because it was able to flee.

The bear appears to have left the city, and search efforts have ended.
