A black bear, possibly the same one seen recently in several south-metro communities, was shot and killed early Saturday morning in West St. Paul. Police say they received reports of a black bear wandering near Bernard Street West and Charlton Street. The bear was described as weighing between 120 – 150 pounds and had an injured hind leg.
A young bear disrupted traffic Friday morning in Savage before disappearing into the woods, according to police. Authorities first received reports of the bear at about 5 a.m. when it attempted to cross Highway 13 near McColl Drive. Traffic stopped in both directions to allow the bear to pass.
The owner of an injured pit bull in Savage says we may never know how was hurt. The dog’s owner says someone intentionally tried to hurt his dog, Caesar.
More than two months after suffering a traumatic head injury in a car accident, a Savage Police officer was released from the hospital on Tuesday.
