Crawford County Home Visited By Family Of Bears, Caught On Camera

A furry family of five bears, caught on camera…

A group from Crawford County preparing for a deer hunt, got quite the surprise when they took a look at their trail cam.

This is what Nicole Pratt and her husband found.

Nicole says her mother-in-law checked their camera in Frederic to see if they had any deer visiting the area.

Instead, they found this big mama bear with her four cubs.

She says she has never seen that many bears so close to home.

“Of course, I won’t let my two boys outside after dark and, you know, it’ll be what it’ll be,” Pratt says. “Quite frankly, we live in nature and nature can live with us. It doesn’t bother us any.”

The DNR says this is a common sight this time of year and not always dangerous if you take the necessary precautions.

They have posted a set of things to keep in mind, just in case you ever find yourself in a similar situation.
