A young black bear that wandered into Livingston created a commotion mid-day Tuesday as it roamed through streets and neighborhoods in an area from East Geyser Street to near Park High School. Above, the bear crosses B Street near its intersection with Geyser. Below left, the bruin walks through a yard and climbs a fence in the same area. The bear was soon after seen moving along Fleshman Creek before disappearing into a wooded area near Park High School. An officer with the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Park was on the scene and hoped to tranquilize it.
