A couple unexpected guests visited Jan Pederson in Brandon on Memorial Day. Two black bears strolled up into her yard in the early evening.

Spying them through her patio doors, Pederson called 911 and the Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Both told her there was no cause for alarm, she said. Pederson lives on the southeast side of Big Chippewa Lake.
