ALLAMAKEE COUNTY (KWWL) -

This is a rare sight in eastern Iowa.

A black bear was spotted in a cornfield.

Brian Gibbs saw the animal near the Yellow River State Forest in Allamakee County.

The DNR says it's only had two bear reports this year. It says most bears visit from Wisconsin or Minnesota, but usually don't stay put in Iowa.
