ORR, Minn. (WCCO) — Minnesota is home to about 27,000 black bears. And each year thousands of people visit a sanctuary to get an up-close look at them and learn about their behavior.

The American Bear Association runs the Vince Shute Wildlife Sanctuary in the small town of Orr. That’s way up north in St. Louis County.

This week in Finding Minnesota, photojournalist Tom Aviles shows us what it’s like to Eat Breakfast with the Bears.

    So, they are allready baiting the bears up in northern MN?

    I wonder if the bears order coffee and a “Human Claw” for breakfast.
