RUSSELL, Wis. (AP) — Police in Lincoln County, Wis., looking into a garage burglary last week say the thief was a real bear.

The Green Bay Press Gazette reported Monday that a Russell man complained that someone had broken into his garage and stole a 50-pound bag of sunflower seeds.

Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department investigated and found claw marks, a broken window and evidence that a bear had dragged the bag of seeds into nearby woods. The bear was not found, police said.
