LA PLATA COUNTY, Colo. — A special visitor to County Jail couldn’t resist its right to “bear arms.”

The La Plata County Sheriff’s Office tweeted a series of photos showing a bear who apparently scaled a gate into a secure area Tuesday.

Authorities say the bear was able to elude deputies by climbing up a tree and eventually fled the scene on paws.
