Bear cub gets caught in mall's double doors
PITTSBURGH, P.A. (NBC) -- A mall in the Pittsburgh area had an unexpected visitor Saturday night: A bear wandered into the Sears store.
The bear ran through a parking lot of the Pittsburgh Mills mall in Frazier, northeast of downtown Pittsburgh, about 9 p.m. and slipped into the Sears store using one of the automated doors, WTAE of Pittsburgh reported.
The bear then became stuck in the lobby area of the store, WTAE said. A photo posted by NBC station WPXI showed the bear stuck between two sets of doors.
Pennsylvania wildlife officials tranquilized the bear and carried it out.
Wildlife officials said the bear, which had a tracking collar on it, appeared to be about 1 1/2 years old, WTAE reported. They said they couldn't immediately determine where it came from.
