The bear cub was first spotted Wednesday in the northeast neighborhood by Dan Bradner, who saw the cub run into bushes on Lamme Street and Plum Avenue about 10:45 a.m. and notified officials. ... In the early afternoon, tree trimmer David Kern helped stop the cub from trotting across Main Street, where it could have been hit in traffic. ... Meanwhile, people who spot a bear in the city are asked not to call 911. "Sighting [a bear] is not an emergency," [Sam] Sheppard said. "There are bears in Bozeman."
