COHOES - A bear is roaming around Cohoes.
A NewsChannel 13 crew spotted the bear near Imperial Avenue and Columbia Street on Wednesday morning.
However, there are also reports of bear sightings near Imperial and Congress – and in the north end of the city.
The bear was quite the wakeup call for Paula Ahern. She saw it just before 6 a.m. on Wednesday and called police.
"First I froze. Then, I said, 'Should I get my Jeep, should I run in the house?' I ran in the house. My husband thinks I'm crazy. He doesn't believe me," she joked.
As a precaution, the Cohoes School District cancelled all outdoor activities for Wednesday.
