LITTLETON, Colo. (AP) - Foraging bears in suburban Denver’s Waterton Canyon have prompted wildlife officials and Denver Water to close off the area until further notice.

The announcement Friday came on the same day that a bear chased a bicyclist in the recreation area that offers hiking, fishing, and horseback riding. The bicyclist was not injured.

Wildlife officials say two sows with twin cubs each have been foraging in the canyon along with other bears. The canyon is located in Littleton.
