GAINESVILLE, Fla.-- A black bear is making its rounds in a Gainesville neighborhood. It was last seen south of SW 25th Place in the Kirkwood subdivision, most likely in search of food.

According to police, it's been loose for three days, but is back in the woods now. People are advised to stay alert, because it could come back out and walk the streets.

Anyone who sees the bear is asked to call the FWC hotline at 888-404-3922.
