Black bear sighting northwest Maple Lake


Gordon Henry, 6780 Gowan Ave., Corinna Twp., and his wife, Patty, saw this black bear on their property Sunday night about 7:30-8:00 p.m.
He said seeing a black glob where there wasn’t supposed to be anything was his first inkling of identifying the bear. 
Henry said he got his camera, which he acknowledged was an inexpensive model, and took several photos of the animal as it left his property. 
“I parked my vehicle on the township road hill after I spotted the bear in the brush and swamp. It stood on its hind legs when a pickup came by and the truck kept it from crossing the road into the Frank Hogan property,” he said. It eventually crossed the road as is shown in the lower photo.
