Bear Drags Deer Carcass Across Road Near Ridgway
A deer that was hit by a car only moments before was dragged off the highway by one hungry bear.
The video was shot on the highway by Dominick Gonzales who was behind the vehicle that hit the deer. The fact that the bear appeared as quickly as it did suggests it was chasing the deer, but thanks to automobiles his chase ended with lunch.
This does point out, however, the importance of being observant while traveling through the mountains, or anywhere in Colorado. It also reminds us that, even though many people are now living in an area where wildlife thrives we need to make sure we are not lunch for a bear.
Keep your eyes open when on the highway, and get your video cameras ready. You never know what might come out of the woods next time!
