A bear brought traffic to a standstill in Utah.
Police say they initially received a report of a bear in a cemetery.
Those who spotted it were reportedly worried that it was headed toward the highway, so police temporarily blocked traffic so the bear could cross safely
After the bear crossed, a wildlife resources officer followed it into the mountains to make sure it was safe.
The sighting came just one day after another black bear made its way onto a middle school campus in the area.
Wildlife officials are now reminding residents that the chance of a bear encounter increases as the drought continues in the state.
The lack of normal food supply leaves bears forced to seek alternate sources, which can lead them into more heavily-populated areas.
