A black bear made an appearance on East Main Street in Osakis, Minnesota Tuesday morning, according to the Osakis Police Department.

But the bear's visit didn't seem to be welcome by all.

A photo posted on Facebook by Osakis police showed the bear holding onto the branches of a large tree in front of a home, while a dog sat at the base of the tree giving the bear a stare down.
