A police officer, responding to the information from a dispatcher,asked if he was looking for a bear cub.

"We're going with a 300-lb black bear," the dispatcher responded.

Officers were searching the area north of Interstate 94 near the power lines by 42nd Street South.

One officer asked a dispatcher to call the Main Stay Suites, 1901 44th St. S., and ask hotel patrons to remain inside because of the bear report.
