Dan, I had one tear apart my feeding station at Little Suamico last week right after the blizzard. Had 30 inches of snow half melted so he was really hurting looking for food along the bayshore . Thankfully it has not been back. Expect one or two to show up by house soon now that things have returned to normal. :) Gets expensive replacing things.

I live about 8 miles NNE of Green Bay on the Suamico river and I woke this morning to my feeders on the ground. The half inch galvanized pipe stand that the feeders hang from was bent until it snapped from its hundred pound concrete base. A mesh sunflower seed feeder was crushed until the three pounds of black oil seed could be reached, and a tube feeder with about a pound of safflower seed was also pulled apart. It looks like the bears are now out of hibernation. Dan Trofka Suamico, Brown County
