Public Service Announcement: There is a bear in Ballwin! And it's a "large bear," if the people who called the city's police department can be trusted.
Witnesses spotted said bear about 8:30 p.m. Sunday as it ran between the Castle Pines subdivision and Oak Run Lane. There are a bunch of houses in the area, but also a lot of trees. It is just north of Castlewood State Park, which seems like one of the better places in the area to live if you're a bear.
