Annette Seals, a Ken Caryl Valley resident, reported the bear sighting and said the bears ran up a tree in her backyard. The bears later ran through her yard toward Bradford Intermediate Elementary School.
Officials at Bradford Intermediate Elementary School said they are taking precautions to ensure students are safe but did not see the bears Thursday morning.
Park rangers in Ken Caryl were contacted by someone at the school. When the rangers saw the bears, the animals were near the space where they were supposed to be so they left them alone.
The school was never on lockdown during the bear sighting.
