Bad news, bear: This Duluth mall is closed

https://www.startribune.com/bad-news-bear-this-duluth-mall-is-closed/570276532/#comment

With nearby Miller Creek and a forest bordering the parking lot, the mall has seen visits from beavers, fox, rabbits and even coyotes over the years.

It was a true bearicade.

A rotund black bear strolled up to an entrance of Duluth’s Miller Hill Mall in the darkness early Wednesday morning and looked around curiously for a while.

Trying to score some sort of freebie?

Bad news, bear: Besides being shuttered for the night, the mall is temporarily closed because of the coronavirus outbreak.

Apparently dejected, the bear sat for a spell near the window of the Noodles & Co. restaurant, which is one of several eateries doing takeout and curbside pickup orders.

Mall security officer Ryan Carlson snapped a few photos of the bear, first standing, then lounging.
