PARKER, Colo. – A large black bear drew the attention of neighbors and police in Parker Thursday when it was seen snacking on trash in front of a home in the Cottonwood subdivision.

Krista Krikke snapped several cell phone photographs of the bear as it rummaged through the contents of a large green trash container in the 8300 block of Prairie Clover Way.

Thankfully for the bear, it wandered off to the Cherry Creek Trail before wildlife officers arrived with tranquilizer guns.
