Bear sighted in Red Wing

Red Wing residents Vic and Sheryl Voth reported spotting a black bear

eating out of a birdfeeder in their backyard Tuesday morning. At one point the bear approached the Voth home and peered in through a patio door.

The sound of a neighbor starting acar frightened the bear away, Sheryl Voth said, but the animal returned a short time later to continue eating from the birdfeeder -- which it ultimately destroyed.

The Voths contacted Red Wing police to report the sighting.
