WATCH: Bear struggles to swim across swollen St. Croix river

Flooding isn't just a commute buster for people—it's even got animals in northern Wisconsin struggling to get where they're going. 

A local teenager captured footage of what appears to be a black bear working to cross the swollen St. Croix river just north of Danbury, Wis., after weekend storms rolled through the area and caused flooding that destroyed several roads and burst a dam along the Wisconsin-Minnesota border.

The roads that remain closed in Wisconsin include sections U.S. Highways 2, 35, 53, 63 and 137. Several other rivers, including the Nemadji and Brule Rivers, are running high and are flooding.
