DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Danville school was placed on lockdown after a black bear was spotted on the school’s grounds.

Danville Police Chief Tony Gray tells news outlets that the bear was seen at the Kentucky School for the Deaf Thursday morning.

Principal Will Begley tells the Lexington Herald-Leader (https://bit.ly/28TUnQT ) that the school was immediately placed on lockdown, with students and staff already inside for summer programs. The bear eventually went to a wooded area near the campus.

Gray says bear sightings are not unusual for the area but it is rare to see a bear in the city limits.
