Police: Man chased by bears takes refuge on truck

COLORADO SPRINGS — Police say a man was forced to take refuge on top of his truck after being chased by three bears in Colorado Springs.

The man wasn’t hurt.

KRDO-TV reported that the man called police to report a mother bear and her two cubs had been chasing him Sunday night.

Police say he called back a few minutes later to say the bears had run off.

Officials say Colorado’s recent warm weather has black bears waking up from hibernation earlier than usual.

The Colorado Division of Wildlife said residents had reported seeing a mother bear and two cubs roaming in another part of the city in March.

Authorities have been telling people to avoid interaction with bears since conflicts often end with the animals being euthanized or relocated.
