    A friend of ours just called and said that it came across the scanner that 2 cars had hit a bear behind my house on the interstate and now they can't find it. I live in a lil patch of woods right off the interstate, there is only a corn field that separates the interstate from my house.. HMM??? I was out feeding in the dark when the DH hollered at me and told me, needless to say my hind end got in the house right quick!!

    I've seen deer total cars out before, I imagine a bear for sure could total a car out.

    Quote:I was kinda shocked we live in between an interstate and a hwy. We are out in the country but I just never thought they would be a bear around here.

    I think there are more bear in Virginia than any of us realize. I saw a dead juvenile on the side of I-95 on my commute to Washington, DC a couple of years ago and couldn't believe it. Glad they located the bear that was on the loose near your house but just be aware and alert - where there is one, there are probably more.
