These are not the bears that have been roaming around Iron River in recent months. This mother bear and her three tiny cubs (all in a straight line) were spotted July 1 along Wisconsin Highway 70 near Alvin, about 15 miles from Iron River, apparently snacking at an ant hill. They eventually went back into the woods. (Peter Nocerini photo)
