(Lake Crystal, MN) – It may be time for locals to starting stocking up on bear spray.

Yet another black bear sighting in southern Minnesota has been reported to the DNR. This one was apparently seen near the Watonwan River, about five miles south of Lake Crystal.

As noted in our previous coverage, these sightings are not verified, although the DNR says black bear reports in southern Minnesota may continue to increase as they push out beyond their primary range.
