GLASSCOCK COUNTY - Deputies in Glasscock County this weekend have called off their hunt for a loose bear.

A family had spotted the bear on Wednesday, which prompted a full search.

Parks and wildlife officials had put out bear traps across the county, but apparently the bear didn't buy it.

Sheriff's deputies say this is the first time; a bear has been sighted in their County.

They think the same bear may have been spotted earlier Wednesday in Reagan County.

After an extensive search and since no one has seen the bear since Wednesday, the Sheriff's Office tells NewsWest 9 they have called off the search.
