SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -

The Sabis International Charter School has canceled recess because of a bear that was seen in the area. 

A Western Mass News crew in the area said they saw a bear near the Hillcrest Cemetary.

Environmentalists said they don't like to use a tranquilizer unless the bear is a nuisance or it's becomes aggressive. They try to herd the bears back into the woods where they came from. 

Western Mass News will have more on this story at 4 p.m. on CBS3.
