CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (CBS4)– A bear took to a tree in Castle Rock on Wednesday morning. The bear was spotted in a tree near Mickelson Boulevard and Brantly Avenue.

That’s in Michell Gulch Park but there are middle and elementary schools nearby.

Castle Rock police are asking people not to come to the area. They hope the bear will come down from the tree and wander back into the wilderness.
