I found the bear at loc 59241,20752. He was heading NWN...to my surprise, I was expecting him to go the other way according the all the instructions. The second time he spawned he was heading a SES direction and was coming from a completely opposit direction(???) Somewhere I read that the bear only spawn during the daytime and I caught him just when the sky was darkening. It was 18h when I found him strolling towards me the first time and 23h the second time.
So in brief:
-he spawn on Jordheim side of the river.
-he can spawn at night
-he wasn't in the water but on land
-it appears that he might have 2 spawn points or he walks SES direction first then heads back. So basically he passes the bridge twice.
-first time I saw the bear, he walked right up to the guards at the Binding Stone and died, and the second time he was swimming on the Vaseudheim side of the bridge and was about to take the same route to the bind stone
