Mama bear, 3 cubs cause lockdown at Issaquah elementary school

The Associated Press

ISSAQUAH —  Black bear sightings aren’t unusual in east Seattle suburbs such as Issaquah but the sight of an adult bear and three cubs rambling across the campus of an elementary school prompted a brief lockdown.

Officials at Issaquah Valley Elementary School alerted police and the Washington state Department of Fish and Wildlife when they saw the bears Wednesday morning.

KOMO-TV reports that the lockdown was lifted around noon after wildlife officers confirmed the bears were no longer nearby.

Fish and Wildlife Officer Bruce Richards says the bears likely left the woods for a nearby creek in search of salmon. He suggests people just leave the bears alone.
