MARSHFIELD (WAOW) -- The Kruger family has a special guest who shows up at night.
That guest is a bear.
The family has taken several pictures of the animal that hangs out in their backyard.
Randell Kruger believes the bear comes from the trees behind his garage.
Video and pictures usually capture the bear on the sidewalk, near the rear entrance of the family's house.
Video shows the bear to be around six feet tall when standing.
Kruger says it's unusual to see a bear in downtown Marshfield.
"Squirrels and deer, typical things you might see in a city, but a bear - not really. I mean this is farm country, not a national forest or forested area." Kruger said. "So, for him to be hanging around here, it's a little unusual."
Kruger believes the bear is female, although he says he doesn't want to check personally.
