    NBC New York
    A jogger says he saw a bear like this one while jogging in Rock Creek Park.

    It’s not exactly what you’re hoping to see while on a jog. A runner called police Tuesday night after he he spotted a black bear in northwest Washington.

    He was running along Beach Drive in Rock Creek Park at the time. He said the bear was just north of Military Road.

    There are no active searches for the bear at this point, but officers have been told to keep an eye out.
