There's a bear wandering around Illinois, please leave it alone.

A couple of weeks ago, there was a video floating around the internet of a bear hanging out in Wisconsin. Since then, it's been spotted in Iowa and now Illinois.

It has been quite the celebrity with fans trying to catch a glimpse of it. I guess we aren't used to seeing one in our area.

Now, the Illinois Department Of Natural Resources has put out a bulletin about the situation. Here, it is on their Facebook page.

I'm sure people won't listen to the warning. It will take someone to get attacked for them to pay attention to the posting.

Please leave the bear alone.
