Bear Spotted in Blaine Tree

A bear climbed up a tree in a resident's front lawn in Blaine on Tuesday.
Someone called 9-1-1 Tuesday morning after spotting a black bear near the intersection of Davenport Street and 132nd Avenue Northeast, Kare11 reported. The bear crawled up a tree in a front yard and was still there as of 3:45 p.m.
Witnesses said the bear appears to be around two years old and it came from a wooded area near the neighborhood, Kare11 reported.
The Department of Natural Resources advised authorities to leave the bear alone and said the bear will likely move on to a different spot overnight, WCCO reported.
The bear seemed calm, but authorities are concerned because the crowds that have been gathering to see the bear could agitate it, Kare 11 reported.
The exact location of the bear was not released because authorities do not want to attract a large crowd to the scene, WCCO reported.
