Security Guards At Japan's Azuma Sports Park Spot A Brown Bear

A MARTINEZ, HOST:

Good morning. I'm A Martinez. The Tokyo Olympics won't have any in-person spectators, but local media reports said a security guard at the Azuma Sports Park spotted a brown bear. Maybe it wanted to watch the softball game between Japan and Australia, or maybe it was just looking for food. In any case, the critter is still on the loose. Now, organizers tried using loud music and firecrackers to shoo it away. If hide-and-seek were an Olympic game, that bear would medal. It's MORNING EDITION.
