Black bear spotted in Vacaville neighborhood

A black bear paid a visit Friday morning to the North Alamo Drive neighborhood of Vacaville.

Police responded but the bear eluded the officers, Sgt. J. Johnson said.

The bear’s 7:30 a.m. visit was captured on Instagram. The video shows a bear running down a court and scaling a fence into a backyard.

There were no reports of injuries to people, pets or property other than claw marks on a fence, Johnson said.

Police advised residents not to confront the bear if it returns but to instead call police.
