Bear menaces campers on Sand Island

APOSTLE ISLANDS, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  One of Wisconsin’s Apostle Islands is closed to overnight camping, after a black bear ate people’s food and damaged property. Sand Island remains open for day use. Visitors are being urged to keep an eye on their lunch at all times – and immediately report any bear activity. The bear was visiting campsites after eating somebody’s food.

Officials said they’ll keep an eye on the animal, and they’ll decide on a weekly basis when to lift the ban on overnight camping. It will resume once the bear is re-trained to stay away from people.

Sand Island is part of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in the National Park System.
