A 400-pound male bear, interrupted as it apparently scrounged for food at a Dumpster, clambered onto the roof of the Viewmont Mall early Friday, wandering from one end of the shopping complex to the other before it was tranquilized by the Pennsylvania Game Commission and removed.
“It’s one of those things that make people wonder, ‘Am I actually seeing this?’” Dickson City Police Chief William Bilinski said.
Of course, had the bear completed his plan, it would have been a lot worse. Obviously, the bombardier bear berserker was bent on pouncing on an unaware early shopper heading into the mall.
Shop ’til you’re dropped.
