OAKLEY, Ohio (AP) - The elusive black bear wandering all over suburban Cincinnati this past week has been spotted again, this time outside a church.

Residents a police say the young bear was seen outside a church Sunday morning in the suburb of Oakley just east of Cincinnati.

Police tell WCPO-TV that a wildlife officer from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources has been called in to track the bear as it made its way along a creek bed.

Ohio wildlife officials have been warning people to stay away from the bear believed to be 2 or 3 years old and weighing about 85 pounds.

Officials think it swam across the Ohio River from Kentucky and was first seen earlier this week.
