Did you hear about the bear?

“Did you hear about the bear?” That has been a common question over the past couple of weeks, with confirmed reports of a bear in the area.
The closest reported sighting of the bear came on Tuesday, June 4, when a videotape was posted to Facebook of the bear just off Eastman Road, just south and east of Sisseton. Prior to that, there were sightings near Wilmot on Tuesday, May 28, and Twin Brooks on Thursday, May 30. Video and/or photo evidence back up those reports, as well.
SD Game, Fish and Parks is monitoring the bear’s movement and expect it to exit the area soon. Though there have been previous bear sightings in the area, it’s a rare occurrence.
