Iowa farmer finds bear during harvest

(Scheley, Iowa)    A northeast Iowa farmer encountered a bear Tuesday, while harvesting a cornfield in Howard County.

Eric Reicks says they were finishing up harvesting the last few rows of corn when he got a call from his dad, letting him know there was something ahead of him. That something turned out to be a black bear.

The bear was spotted four miles northwest of Schley, Iowa.

Black beaer sightings have been reported in Poweshiek County in September and October. A black bear was also spotted in Mahaska County in July.
