Bear on the Ice by the Madeline Island Ferry

Bayfield Bear on Ice

This yearling bear was probably kicked out recently by his or her mommy bear. It was first spotted from the ferry Easter morning at about 7:45 am. The bear was floating on an ice floe in the middle of the ferry's path. It floated from Madeline Island (we think) to Basswood then to Bayfield. I had been watching it make its way to Bayfield all day! It finally made it safely to land at about 5:30 pm!
