The past two summers we have had a neighborhood bear. Two years ago the bear took a chunk out of the 4 wheeler seat and spent his summer in our corn. Last year we found one a few miles west in another old yard.
This summer has been devoted to this lost girl. A neighbor spotted her a few weeks ago near our farm. This morning she was making the rounds in the neighborhood. We do have two elk herds in Northwest Minnesota. Just a guess that this girl is from the Kittson County herd, which means she is 40 miles south. The Grygla herd is 70 miles to the east. Here is a graphic from the MN DNR about where to find MN elk herds.
Let's hope this lost girl finds her way to the herd. She seems awful lonely, especially with snoopy neighbors following her around trying to take a picture.
This is what I get for majoring in agriculture economics at North Dakota State University. A farm near the Canadian border, far from any delivery restaurants or shopping centers. Sometimes in life you get nothing that you prayed for, and yet so much more than you asked. Life doesn't have to be easy to be wonderful and blessed.
