Bear takes hike through central Cloquet

A young black bear was the star attraction in central Cloquet Monday, much to its dismay.

Residents of the 300 block of Sixth Street reported the bear -- which had climbed up a tree in someone's backyard to escape barking dogs -- to the police just before 5 p.m. Monday. Before that, likely the same black bear had been spotted near Atkins-Northland Funeral Home on 14th Street.
