A black bear was spotted early Friday afternoon roaming John "Prairie Dog" O'Brien Park just east of downtown Colorado Springs.

Gazette reporter Daniel Chacón saw the bear at the park.

The bear didn't approach anyone, but did climb over the fence of a nearby yard to avoid a few curious onlookers.
