Black Bear sightings on the rise at Sleeping Bear Dunes
Last weekend there was a little excitement in Traverse City as a 300-400 pound black bear was sighted roaming around and ultimately corralled by law enforcement. Click to the Record-Eagle for a great photo gallery.
We received an extra-appropriate notice from the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore that bear sightings have increased in recent years, particularly near the Platte River Campground. They have some great tips on what to do when you encouter a bear that will help keep you and the animal safe & happy! Check it out!

Kudos to Rob Karner and the GLA for going the extra mile for one of the Michigan’s most beautiful lakes!
