DNR Removes Bear from Neighborhood Near St. Ignace

The Department of Natural Resources says a black bear that made itself at home in a neighborhood near St. Ignace has been located.

The DNR says the bear had settled into a subdivision, but is now being taken to a suitable habitat far away from the homes in hopes that the bear will not return.

The DNR is asking people in the area to put their garbage and bird feeders inside for a while, they are believed to attract bears.
