Email

WEST ST. PAUL, Minn. — Police in West St. Paul shot and killed an injured black bear early Saturday.

The bear was spotted in a residential area. Police Chief Manila Shaver said efforts to contain it in hopes of tranquilizing it were unsuccessful. He said a possible injury to the bear’s hind foot was aggravating it.

Shaver said officers feared that the bear would flee to an even more populated area, so they shot it.
