October 28, 2010
San Luis Obispo police officers were able to chase a 200 to 250 pound black bear from the populated area of Marsh and Santa Rosa Streets to a more rural area closer to open space late Wednesday night.
Residents first spotted the bear in the 1500 block of Marsh Street. Officers worked to keep the bear out of populated area and drove him toward San Luis Creek where the bear remained in the creek behind Scolari’s on Johnson Avenue for about an hour.
The bear was last spotted at around 6 a.m. in the area of Spring Street and Flora Court headed towards a backyard that abutted open space.
