Bear cub inside mall surprises shoppers

Posted: Updated:

A black bear cub was caught roaming around the Pittsburgh Mills Mall Saturday night.

The 120-pound animal was found inside the Sears store.

"He came right up by our foot and growled, she about had a heart attack," said witness Tracy Paradise.

Store employees helped to evacuate the entire mall safely as wildlife conservation officers shot the bear with a tranquilizer gun and removed it.

Animal experts said they've never seen anything like this before.

No injuries have been reported.
