Wayne Theisen of Randville snapped a photo recently of a young bear trying to reach a bird feeder near Theisen's home and property along M-95. The feeder is about eight feet above the ground. The bear had problems getting past a "squirrel stopper" on the post, Theisen said. It jumped to the ground and so far hasn't returned.
