Wild Animal Sightings 

       
     
 
       
 

This idea was presented to me from a group of kids at the lake.  Their ages range from Middle School to High School age, and  they have been fascinated with stories of the variety of animals that have been seen near here.   

 
This is for you Garrett & Luke! 

 

       
        

A little explanation for below:  The "Facts" are from the Michigan DNR office in Baldwin.  The "Sightings" are as told to me by individuals, but NOT confirmed by the DNR.

    ** Some of these animals listed above we may fear, because we do not know how to live with them, and we are not used to having them in our area, because at one time some were near extinction around the area.  I visited the DNR office in town here (BALDWIN) to question them and gather information which they gave me to post here on this web site about how to live side by side with the animals some of us may fear.
