Algona Pioneer Press, May 4, 1861.
The Fort Dodge Republican, of April 30, 1861, says that while Mr. Hiram Bellows was on his way from his home near Dakota City, to Fort Dodge, killed a large black bear. Bruin was crossing the road, when Mr. Bellows, observing him, unhitched one of his horses, and started in pursuit. After a chase of two or three miles, the bear was overtaken and dispatched by a load from a heavy, double-barreled shot gun.
