FORT MYERS, Fla. - Treeline Elementary was forced into lockdown Monday after yet another bear wandered near campus.

Students were kept inside after the bear was reportedly spotted walking trails at nearby Colonial Country Club. School dismissal wasn't affected, but as of Monday night, Florida Fish and Wildlife officers are still looking for the bear.

This comes just weeks after two bears were spotted rummaging through a dumpster at Pinewoods Elementary in Estero. And shortly before that, another bear made its way to Three Oaks Elementary before being captured and relocated.
