Bartlett High School: Bear Chased From School Grounds By Alaska Authorities

Posted: Updated:

ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Authorities say a bear had to be chased away after wandering into an Anchorage, Alaska, high school.

Police say the small black bear on Wednesday wandered into Bartlett High School – home of the Golden Bears – through a door left open for construction workers.

Police responded and searched the school for the bear. They found clues like knocked-over trash cans that contained food.

Eventually officers began banging on doors to scare the bear. It did the trick, and the animal ran outside, into the nearby woods.

The bear may have felt welcome at Bartlett High. Besides having bears as a mascot, the school has a large bruin painted on the side.
