Abstract

At least two caribou (Rangifer tarandus) were observed in Cook Co. of northeastern Minnesota from October 1980 through April 1981. This is the first record of caribou in the area since 1924. The nearest records of this species were 224 km NE of the present sightings, and the closest known established population of caribou is 240 km away.
