FRAZEE - A black bear that wandered into downtown Frazee on Saturday was shot and killed by city police officers.

Frazee Police Chief Mike Lorsung said that the bear was initially seen on the 200 block of South Lake Street. From there, the bear moved into an alley behind the Frazee Restaurant, which is called the Baer Building, coincidently.


The bear's final trip was a lengthy one - about 60 miles.
