Arizona Game and Fish officials have caught and killed a bear that was seen wandering through a foothills neighborhood.

According to department rep Mark Hart, Game and Fish received a call that the bear was in a wash in the 5800 block of Bright Star Drive at 9:35 a.m. The bear charged an officer, who shot and killed the bear.

Hart said the bear was caught in 2016 and relocated, and that it was the same bear spotted on Mount Lemmon
