Soggy, groggy bear

Thursday's warm-up and resulting water-flow may have awakened this black bear from his winter slumber in a highway culvert. The bear's appearance was stopping traffic for a time along Hwy. 65, just south of CTH E around 4 p.m. New Richmond resident Tom White, who snapped this picture, said the large bear eventually got bored with the excitement and crawled back into the steel tube.
