Video shows a bear in Montana with...a laptop computer?

Posted: Updated:

If there is someone in Montana who says a bear ate their homework, they could be right. 

Michael Potter of Whitefish shared this brief video clip on Facebook of a bear with something  in its mouth near Arlee several days ago.

"It was a Montana moment I'll never forget, I mean I grew up here in Whitefish, Montana and when I saw that, that is what makes Montana great," Potter told MTN News.

He explained, "As I drew focus and zoomed in with my phone, I could see it clearer. And then when I was editing the video the next morning, I zoomed in at 100 percent and it just appeared to have a little micro-logo on it and shading right where a laptop would fold."

Stacy Courville, a wildlife biologist with the Confederated Salish & Kootenai Tribe, said, "It's so hard to tell and the video is so short, at least the one I have seen. We've look at it multiple times and we can't tell."

Wildlife experts say bears will dine on anything from berries, fish, vegetation - but a laptop computer? Probably not.
