A Northwest Wisconsin mystery was recently solved with a Department of Natural Resources trail camera.

DNR Warden Matt Koshollek of Drummond responded to the unusual call. A person was frustrated by what appeared to be someone causing mischief with his bear bait. Day after day, the bait was being covered with sand.

Who was behind the cover-up?

A trail camera was put in place to determine who was carrying out the sandy act. After one night, the mystery was solved. Camera evidence showed a badger waddling up to cover the bait.
