After a bear sighting in New Ulm, the police department has one message for locals: Leave the animal alone.
In a Facebook post Wednesday, the department encouraged residents not to approach the bear.
"This includes trying to take photos or a selfie," the post read.
For those who do catch a glimpse of the bear, they are asked to call the New Ulm Police Department at 507-233-6750.
