Black bear has a ball rolling in sawdust in northern Minnesota
A unique black bear with white fur, also known as a "spirit bear," was spotted in Michigan - but it was killed moments later.
The one-in-a-million bear was unfortunately killed by wolves shortly after snaps of the bear were posted by Facebook group Yooper Outdoors #906 on 6 September.
"Happy Bear Eve!! There's been a white, black bear on camera in the Yoop! Extremely rare, but ya never know what May coming walking into your bait," the post read.
The group, a Michigan-based guide service, and outfitter, told Fox News Digital that the white-coloured black bear was found dead following the early-September sighting of the animal, having been killed by wolves.
"Our wolf population has devastated our big game populations in the U.P.," Yooper Outdoors #906 said in another Facebook post.
