The bear that strolled into Sears at the Pittsburgh Mills shopping mall had to be tranquilized and taken away. Now a second bear has appeared at the same mall, near the Olive Garden. It didn't stick around, but later returned, backing up traffic on a highway. State game officials say they now plan to set a bear trap.
