5:13 in the morning. Not surprising as that is the time alot of critters wander about. That looks like it happened near the Wildcat lake store. We have a number of bear around here. I saw one crossing the road right at the store last year.

The Kitsap County Public Works Department, which removes road kill from county roads, arrived and found a person on scene who wanted to keep the bear for meat, according to Doug Bear, spokesman for the county.

A new law that took effect in July allows for salvage of deer and elk killed by motor vehicles. Salvaging bears is not allowed, said Sgt. Ted Jackson of the Washington State Department of Fish & Wildlife.
I didn't think it'd get better than "motorcyclist strikes and kills bear and escapes unscathed!"

Sooo many questions for the guy that was able to come away uninjured after hitting and killing a bear.

Actually I think both work. Boone allegedly carved into a tree in Tennessee that he "cilt a bar" at that site. Crockett was killing them too.
