Wildlife officials are searching for a bear that was spotted in a suburban Phoenix neighborhood.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department says it received reports Wednesday night of a bear at a Mesa country club.
    
The department shared video on its Facebook page Thursday of a bear walking along the sidewalk of a residential area.
    
The agency says the bear appears to be juvenile, has not shown any aggression and seems to be steering clear of people.
    
However, officials are cautioning the public against approaching the animal.
    
They are asking for anyone to report any first-hand sightings.
