A bear was spotted at the Fukushima Azuma Baseball Stadium on Wednesday ahead of a softball match between the Japan and Australian teams here, even though spectators are banned from the Olympics. Fukushima is 150 km north of the main Olympic venue in Tokyo. According to local media, it was an Asian black bear. Shortstop Amanda Chidester said: ‘I saw a text message this morning asking if it was true. There was a big black bear there. It is being said that he had come to the field. He said, ‘A girl from our team also said that news is coming that a bear had entered there. Then I informed my family that their news was true. There was really a bear there.’ After that the bear was not seen there. American coach Ken Erickson said, ‘We were looking for some bear to see again.’
