Maine rangers and wardens visit a bear family in their winter den

Written by

CARTHAGE - An interesting discovery by Maine Forest Rangers.

The Maine Forest Service posted photos this past weekend along with the story of Ranger Erik Ahlquist.


He went on a timber inspection in Carthage down in Franklin County last year and stumbled upon a black bear den.


This past weekend he returned to the site with biologists from the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife and found a happy and sleepy little bear family.
