For the second time in six months, a black bear wandered around a St. Paul neighborhood before being shot and killed by police.
Researchers in Ely said Tuesday they have figured out what caused Lily’s black bear cub to die.
She just might be the most popular bear in the world and she lives in northern Minnesota. Lily became famous last year when she gave birth to a cub live on a webcam. But despite her popularity, and the fact that she’s a research bear, Lily isn’t protected by the state.
