A rare sighting of two small brown bears in a Saint Louis suburb. A sleepy Sunday afternoon was interrupted by a pair of brown bears in this typical Midwestern suburb. Seeing the first bear was a real treat, but then we noticed another in a tree.
Brown bears have not been known to inhabit this part of the Midwest since the late 18th century. Typically aggressive toward humans, this pair showed an unusual softness and simply desired to be hugged.
