UTAH COUNTY -- More images have turned up of a wandering bear in Utah County that's considered potentially dangerous.

New images of bear wandering near campground

These cell phone photos were taken a week ago Sunday, near Balsam Campground in Hobble Creek Canyon. They were sent to us by Katy Jolley, who saw the bear along with her son and grandchildren.

It was right about the same time the bear spent 15 minutes hanging around the Jeep of Springville woman we reported on Tuesday night.

Wildlife officials have expressed concern because the young bear seems to have no fear of coming close to humans.
