Bear goes ice surfing on Lake Superior, survives feat

People on the Madeline Island ferry spotted a sad sight earlier this month: A bear stuck on a giant chunk of ice floating out on Lake Superior. It's like the Midwest version of polar bears on ice.
The drama lasted for several hours before the bear made it safely to shore and accomplished his mission: Get off that island.

Her husband saw the bear getting close to land around 5:30 p.m. near Bayfield.
The situation became dangerous when the bear smashed through the ice and struggled to get back up on the ice. By the time he made it on land, witnesses said he took a long nap and then disappeared.
Free at last.
