As we get accustomed to living with bears in the stateline area, I came across a feel good story about a bear in Rice Lake, WI. That's 299 miles north/northwest of Rockford, so I assume our bear hasn't wandered that far north. Rumor is that Wisconsin has plenty of their own bears. Ironic isn't it?

We've all seen pictures of Winnie the Pooh with his head stuck inside of the honey jar. Here's a black bear getting freed from the confines of a milk bucket. We're living in a world where bears and lumberjacks can live side by side. Hey, I'll take a feel-good story whenever I can.
