WKYC - A black bear is on the run in Cleveland's Cuyahoga County.

The bear spent several hours perched in a tree in Bedford Heights Tuesday as police, firefighters and animal control officers waited below.

When it was finally coaxed from the tree, the bear darted past a crowd of onlookers and into nearby woods.

On Wednesday it was spotted again in the nearby town of Solon, walking near railroad tracks.

Experts say the bear, a juvenile male, appears to be moving east, away from populated areas.
