MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Police in St. Cloud say they stood watch for hours Sunday after a black bear and two cubs climbed into a tree near a neighborhood on the city’s southeast side.

Police got a call about the bears shortly before 2 p.m. They said they talked with the DNR about what to do with the bears, and the DNR recommended leaving them alone.

Officers stayed on the scene, near the 400 lock 15th Avenue Southeast, for hours to make sure people did not disturb the bears.

As of Monday morning, the bears had climbed down from the tree and left the neighborhood, which is located near a wooded area.
