As Harvest Fest was in full swing on Friday night- dancing, listening to the music of Break Even under the big tent on Main Street- a call was made to the Sheriff's Office at 11:25 p.m. that a black bear was spotted near Fastenal, 4th Ave. SE, not far from the festivities in downtown Dodge Center. After chasing it through backyards on the south side of town, Sheriff Jim Jensen said they lost it when it headed into a cornfield.

When asked if it was sauntering or running as they were pursuing it, Jensen said, "Oh, it was definitely running."

A man in their party who has hunted bear in the past estimated the black bear to be about 150 pounds, Jensen said. The posse cleared the area at 12:35 a.m.
