Bear Walks Through High School
A black bear wandered into Bozeman High School in Bozeman, Montana, Wednesday morning. It came in through an open garage door, ambled down a hallway, and left by another door. Students were ushered into classrooms during the incident, although some people were able to take pictures and video. Bozeman Police and officials from the Fish, Wildlife and Parks Department responded to calls from the school, and met the bear outside. They were able to shoo it into an adjacent field, then it left the area. The bear hasn’t been seen since. No one got close to the bear during the incident.
