This young black bear’s mad dash across North Park was a sensation.

Smile, little black bear, you are on Candid Camera! O.K. actually Zimmerman Camera. Kristoffer Zimmerman was playing disc golf in North Park Thursday afternoon when out of nowhere, a rambunctious visitor came running through the park. It was a bear, right in the middle of the day.

“There was a woman pushing a stroller with a baby on the walking trail, so we yelled, ‘BEAR!’ She ran over by us and the bear came up the walking path where she was going with the baby,” said Zimmerman. Once he started recording on his cell phone, Zimmerman witnessed the bear crash into the tennis court fence and then frolic toward his group, who were watching from the basketball court. The young bear eventually made its way back to the woods.
