A black bear attacked a security guard inside a Colorado hotel early Monday.
The bear entered the hotel through a door that had been left open.
The security guard sustained minor injuries and was treated at a hospital.
The bear was last seen running into the nearby woods.
Wildlife officials are searching for the bear and have set up traps in the area.
The hotel has closed its doors to guests while the search is ongoing.
Officials are reminding residents and visitors to be bear aware and to secure their trash and food.
Black bears are common in Colorado and encounters with humans are not uncommon.
