Authorities urge caution after bear seen in Zimmerman

Law enforcement is urging caution after a bear was spotted in Zimmerman.

The Sherburne County Sheriff’s Office posted a picture of the bear in a tree on Tuesday, saying it was in a residential area.

“The bear poses no danger at this time, but crowds of people coming to the area won’t help. We’re monitoring the situation along with the DNR,” the sheriff’s office said.
