As of Wednesday morning, a black bear still is in a tree near the intersection of East 9th Street and Oregon Avenue. Law enforcement first received reports of the bear in town Tuesday night, but attempts to chase it out of town failed and the bear climbed the tree instead, drawing dozens of onlookers.

A bear trees himself in Morris

There's a bear in a tree in Morris.

Let's repeat that: There's a bear in a tree. In Morris.

Granted, that's not quite as strange as, say, seeing a kangaroo romping down Atlantic Avenue. But the burly black beasts typically are denizens of the northern forests of Minnesota, not the flat, open fields of West Central Minnesota.

But, nonetheless, there it is, perched in a tree near the intersection of East 9th Street and Oregon Avenue.
