A bear was caught on camera crossing the road in style.

ASHEVILLE, N.C. — Anything is 'pawsible' even a bear crossing the road at midday. 

A very cautious bear was caught on camera using a crosswalk at an intersection in Asheville. 

According to WSPA and the Asheville Police Department, police got a call Thursday afternoon about a black bear taking a stroll downtown. 

In the video, you can see the bear walking across the street wearing a Wildlife enforcement tracking collar. 

The bear was also spotted claiming a tree in the Pritchard Park area. 

Police said this was the third time a bear has been caught in the downtown area in the last three weeks.
