Beware of bears bandying about
Bear complaints in the region are on the rise this summer, according to Department of Natural Resources officials.
Bob Kirsch, the DNR wildlife manager in Two Harbors, said calls about bears are "up a little bit the last couple of weeks."
Most are coming from outside of city limits with bears coming to bird feeders and garbage cans, he said. Kirsch said it's par for the course in the area, unlike Duluth, where "you get one there and everyone calls about it."
