Wherever you are driving this evening, watch out for flying bears.
Gads...when your time is up, I guess it's up
I wonder how the bear fared through all that.
He was lying lifeless on the side of the road according to the photo.
For some reason I just flashed back to the swan in Hot Fuzz. Only with a bear instead.
Bear are killed here by cars with some frequency, but I've never heard of an accident like that. "Our" resident bear was hit and killed by a truck a few years ago.
Welcome Doober - so happy to see you here in the underground!!!
Wild life getting mowed down on our roads and highways is always upsetting to me. We have a huge problem with deer, especially in the fall but yet I hear some people laugh at how many times they've hit deer. Sad is right...
The bears are fighting back, though it seems they're taking on smaller prey for the time being:
WTSP-10 News: Black bear, Florida bicyclist collide
incidents such as the OP can be similar over here with the exchange of kangaroo's for bears. I have always advised any foreign friends driving on rural/remote roads NOT to slow down if they hit a kangaroo, it is more likely to go over your car if you do not slow - versus in the car if you do.
The last thing you want is an injured kangaroo thrashing about inside your car, with you in it.
It is always sad wildlife v vehicles.
Oz always impressed me with its enormous supply of road kill.
yes, very sad.
Either we still have lot's of wildlife to spare or people just don't care - unfortunately I think it is a combination of both...
