A black bear was seen in a residential area in the Catalina Foothills.

According to Arizona Game and Fish, it is unclear if the bear is the same one who peaked into a family's Mt. Lemmon cabin.

The bear was reported by a family near Skyline and Swan around 7:45 Tuesday night.

By 9 p.m. Game and Fish received another call about a bear sighting seen headed toward La Paloma.

If this bear has a blue ear tag it is very dangerous. 

Game and Fish is asking anyone to report bear sightings to 623-236-7201.
