JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – A bear was spotted up in a tree in between Pierce and Wadsworth in the Columbine Knolls South neighborhood Saturday afternoon.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife says it’s best to put away bird feeders, secure trash containers and keep food locked inside so as not to tempt bears.
