This was actually back in June but the first I heard of it. Can’t believe they used a 4 year old picture 🤔🤔🤔🤔

 

MUNISING, MI - The Michigan DNR recently rescued a bear cub that was stranded on an outcropping near the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore for nearly two weeks.

 

According to an official DNR report, the incident occurred in early June when Mark Zitnik, a conservation officer in DNR District 2, was checking a trout stream with his ride-along when Alger County dispatch reported the stranded bear.

CO Zitnik and the ride-along joined the Alger County Sheriff's Department patrol boat and located the young adult bear. According to the report, CO Zitnik exited the patrol boat and was able to attach a catch pole to the 125-pound bear who had been stranded on the rocks for nearly two weeks.

 

Remarkably, he was able to get the bear alongside the boat, and despite Lake Superior's waves, the group was able to keep the bear swimming along the boat for nearly a half mile until they reached land.

 

The bear was released and is expected to make a full recovery, according to the report.
