Ok I have an update on the accident with the bear yesterday. The bear weighed in at 564 pounds. I got a few more photos also. The vehicle that hit it was a 2013 Nissan Sentra that was a total loss. Thank the lord no one was injured. Please be aware of your speeds because something like this could make for a bad day. Just for your knowledge, besides deer and bears we have worked accidents involving alligators, bobcats, and hogs.
That bear was an absolute giant. No doubt that he was king of his woods! No telling how old he was too.
Look how tiny his ears look on his head. That ol' boy has an impressive noggin no doubt.
I imagine that hitting that bear was like hitting a brick wall. Glad that nobody was hurt!
I’ve always told hunters the first thing to look at on a bear for size is how big or small the ears look. If the ears are tiny and a little on the edge of the head it’s a big bear. If the ears look big like Mickey Mouse it’s a small bear.
