Black bears in Presque Isle den relocated Friday morning
A bear den that was exposed by a trail groomer and discovered during cross-country ski races Sat urday will be relocated by a crew from the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife on Friday morning.
The DIF&W crew has been in northern Maine conducting annual bear den visits of bears that have been previously fitted with radio collars, and which are part of the state’s long-running research project on bears.
According to bear crew leader Randy Cross, his team — Jake Feener, Lisa Feener and Ethan Lamb — will head to the Nordic Heritage Center in Presque Isle and move the bears a short distance, where they won’t interfere with regular activities on the ski trails there.
