Lock-down: Wild Bear "Visits" FL Schools

New Media Producer: Kerry Corum

An un-bear-able situation causes a lock-down at two southwest Florida schools.

A young black bear was spotted running around Immokolee Middle School's campus Thursday morning.

Then the cub graduated to high school - hopping a nine-foot fence.

Florida Fish and Wildlife arrived and used a tranquilizer gun to capture the animal.

The six-foot tall, 180 pound bear was re-released into the wild.
