Fur sure: Mesa neighborhood has bear scare

PHOENIX -- Scratch book-learning off the list of a bear that was corralled by Mesa police Tuesday night near a school.

Officers responded to report of a bear sighting by Sousa Elementary School at Mountain and Cholla roads. Sure enough, upon arrival, they saw a bear running through the neighborhood.

Police were able to corral the 150-pound animal into a fenced area nearby.

Arizona Game and Fish employees arrived and tranquilized the bear without incident.

There were no injuries to person or bear.
