PHOTO: Large bear makes its way through downtown Steamboat

A large bear made its way through Old Town in Steamboat Springs on Tuesday, stopping periodically at trashcans looking for scraps. A Steamboat Springs Police Department officer arrived with a less-lethal projectile but did not shoot it at the bear as it ran off toward Fish Creek Falls Road. Bears are active in town right now, making it important that trash and other attractants are properly secured. (Photo by Dylan Anderson)
