An unwelcome marcher was set to join Ludlow's Memorial Day parade.
Police were working Monday to contain a bear spotted wandering along the route of the parade less than 90 minutes before it was set to begin.
Officials said the bear weighed about 200 pounds, and was spotted wandering at about 7:40 Monday morning.
The parade started at 9.
It eventually ran off into the woods and did not cause any problems during the parade.
