PITTSBURGH (AP) – It was more than some shoppers could “bear.” A Pittsburgh- area mall was evacuated after a bear decided do a little browsing.
Authorities say a young black bear ambled across a parking lot, through doors and into Sears.
According to local media, the 125-pound bear walked around the store for about 10 minutes.
He also growled at some customers, then got stuck between double doors.
Officers from the Pennsylvania Game Commission tranquilized the bear and took him away from the Pittsburgh Mills Mall. Officials say they also will try to trap a second bear spotted in the same area.
