ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Game and Fish, as well as Albuquerque police officers, were busy Tuesday morning running after a number of bears.
Calls started pouring in just after 6 o'clock Tuesday morning from people seeing bears all over the Tramway and Comanche area.
Right now crews are still chasing them.
It is unclear exactly how many bears, but it seems there might be as many as three.
There were many sightings in the area of Tramway and Academy.
Then more calls came near Juan Tabo and Eubank, and then more calls near Indian School and Juan Tabo.
But the bears are quick.
They have stayed ahead of officers Tuesday morning.
At one point a bear ran through Oso Grande Park where some kids were playing.
Then another ran through a middle school campus right into an arroyo.
"We just saw the bear cross the street and almost get hit by this lady and hop the fence," Shay David said. "We thought it would just stay in the road but then hopped the fence and went into the school."
It has been a busy summer for bears in the area. In the last few weeks there have been many sightings there.
In most cases the bears were easily treed and then tranquilized, tagged and then rereleased.
It is unclear if any of the bears being chased Tuesday have come down from the mountains before, because they just can not catch up with them.
Officers will continue to look for them as long as they appear to be a threat.
