A large male black bear wandered into Prince Albert Saturday evening, coming very close to an A&W restaurant.
Witness, Gloria Smith said police responded to the scene and tried to scare the bear back into the bush.
“We saw the bear come out of the bush and then all the cops started to move towards the bear in their cars and they were honking their horns and doing their sirens and stuff,” she said.
The bear then ran back into the bush, she said, but quickly came back out just before it was killed by an officer with a shotgun.
