This is really close to were I live. 


Last fall we had bears in town in a tree. 

MONTMORENCY COUNTY, MI – A large, furry culprit is behind the recent ransacking of a man’s truck, UpNorthLive reported.

A black bear was able to open the door of Claude Conn’s unlocked truck and vandalize it. The bear also broke into his van, but left nothing aside from paw prints.

Conn told UpNorthLive the interior of his truck is completely destroyed. 

There are about 2,000 black bears in northern Michigan. But ransacking cars isn’t a normal activity for them.

“It’s kind of a rare instance, you know, something like that is definitely possible to happen, but it’s not something that people are notifying us about,” Shelby Hiestand, a wildlife biologist at the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, told UpNorthLive.

The best way to keep bears away is by not leaving food around.

“Problems with bears usually are connected with food source issues,” Hiestand said. “So people who might have bird feeders up, or they might have pet food outside, they might have grills where they were cooking food, so usually if a bear is coming near a human residence it’s because of a food-related issue.”

    We’ve had a few experiences with bears getting into our jeep while camping, because of food..

    Thinking that I am very glad we do not have black bears in NW Indiana.

    It can be very cute to see the cuddly bears up close, until it isn’t!
