The downtown Eau Claire bear is getting internet famous.
The city’s police department shared video of the bear wandering through downtown yesterday morning. The small black bear crossed the street, and avoided traffic. Eau Claire Police say the bear was first spotted along Water Street, and then made its way to Phoenix Park before leaving the city limits. Both the PD and the DNR say if the bear comes back, people should stay away. YOUCAN CLICK HERE TO SEE VIDEO.
