Report: Black Bear Sighted in Iowa

A black bear has recently been sighted in Montezuma, Iowa.

An Iowa Department of Natural Resources officer was able to positively identify the sighting.

John Steinbach an Iowa DNR Conservation Officer who saw the bear said, “A call came into the sheriff’s office and a deputy and I got up and drove around the area where the bear was seen. The bear ran in front of the deputy’s vehicle and into a cornfield… I think it’s a fairly young bear that got pushed out of its habitat. It’s just looking for a place to live.”

The bear, thus far, has not shown any aggressive behavior and is not considered a threat to the Iowans.
