A male bear has been stuck in a road ditch in Wanaska, Minnesota, for three days, and officials are working to rescue it. The bear may have an injured paw, and officials may need to use a crane to lift it out of the ditch. Nate Johnson, who runs a non-profit corporation to help rescue bears, has been at the scene and reports that the bear is in a slow state due to hibernation and is not moving. Johnson believes the bear’s paw is injured, but he is not sure how it happened. Officials plan to lift the bear out of the ditch and take it to a veterinarian in Garrison, Minnesota, to assess its condition and determine if it can be rehabilitated. Dr. Katie, the vet who will examine the bear, has experience working with baby bear cubs. The bear is not pregnant, contrary to some reports. Johnson says that if officials decide to dig around the bear more, it will likely need to be tranquilized. The DNR will be on hand to assist with the rescue effort.
