A bear wandered through several yards and climbed back yard fences in Highlands Ranch Friday morning.

Alyssa and Jake Stevens sent pictures of the bear to Denver7.

The Stevens said they saw the bear in their back yard in the Westridge Village community in Highlands Ranch.

The year-old bear had just been removed from a populated area last week. Since it returned, it had to be euthanized.
