Rhonda Chestnutt, who works for a leadership program at the University of Colorado, was pumping coins into a parking meter shortly before 8 a.m. Thursday when she felt shaggy fur brush up against her legs.

Her first assumption was that a large dog — perhaps a Saint Bernard — had just barreled past her outside of CU’s Williams Village dorm complex, near Baseline Road and 30th Street.

But when the animal looked back over its shoulder, she got a better look. Chestnutt realized she just had a brush with a black bear.
