Photos: Black bear in Seymour
This morning a black bear wandered across a street in Seymour, Mo. and climbed a white oak tree. Conservation agents decided not to tranquilize the animal for fear it might be injured falling from the tree. Crowds gathered through the day to observe the bear, who appeared to be sleeping. City officials planned to cordon off the area Tuesday evening and try to get the bear to come down on his own.
