Bear in Polk


Great way to start the day…a rescue! This bear cub found itself in need of assistance when it got it’s head caught in a thick plastic globe. Officer Tamara Larson brought her expertise in handling the wild animal, and several citizens helped as well. Sgt Brent Waak did some difficult cutting of the globe while other deputies kept a very stressed out momma bear a safe distance away. Ultimately, the cub was free to go get in more mischief somewhere else!
