This bear just wanted to see what all the hubbub was about!
A black bear youngster scampered through a Bakersfield elementary school playground. Unfortunately for him, he ran right past the principal's office!
The principal put the school on lock down and kids have a water gun day ran inside. Across the parking lot, 600 parents watched as their kids graduate from middle school as well as the bear that was behind them!
It only took 30 minutes for animal control to corral the 200 pound bear and he was released back into the wild in a more suitable habitat.
