Quoting the RE “About 8 a.m. Tuesday morning my husband, Vic, looked out our Red Wing porch window to find a black bear enjoying the food we put out for the birds! He called me to grab the camera and this is what we saw. At one point the bear ambled to our lower level patio door, peeked in and then moved on. When the neighbor’s car started up he ran into the woods. He returned later to finish his meal and completely destroyed the bird feeder!” photo by Sheryl Voth(2677 Country Ct, Red Wing, MN 55066) – http://www.republican-eagle.com/content/photo-day-click-see-0#sthash.i3pjaeHZ.dpuf
