Bear spotted in Rio Rico

Posted: Updated:

The Santa Cruz County Sheriff is warning residents in Rio Rico to be bear aware.

The brown bear was spotted in a brush area near the Chevron in Rio Rico, according to a tweet.

 Another tweet shows the bear on the west frontage road north of exit 17.

Arizona Game and Fish officials said the bear is most likely a female about 9 years old, looking for water. She is probably not a threat.

If you see the bear you are asked to report it to the sheriff's office.
