The Greenville Department of Public Safety and the Michigan State Police Department are tracking a young black bear in downtown Greenville.

The bear was spotted in a tree by Coffren and Fifth Streets just after 8 p.m. tonight.

It did come down out of the tree and the officers tracked it south.

Officers are asking people to stay inside. They are wanting it to go back into the woods, however if it starts to charge, the officers are required to shoot it.

We will have more information as it becomes available.
