Green River Police officer Mark McDonald holds a 30-to-35 pound black bear cub while Wyoming Game and Fish employees descend from the Green River Fire Department's ladder truck.

Green River residents are used to seeing wildlife in town, especially deer.

It's normal to see deer wandering down the streets, but residents had to do a double take when they saw a bear heading down Uinta Drive Monday afternoon.

Green River Police Department Patrol Sgt. Mark McDonald said a lot of times they get dispatch calls and they turn out to be nothing.

When he received a call from dispatch saying there was a bear in the ditch along Uinta Drive, he thought someone had found the remains of a bear.

Dispatch then radioed back and told him the bear was now moving down Uinta Drive.
