From what I can gather online, this car vs. bear collision occurred earlier this year in Russia. Do you like the music playing on the car’s stereo? I don’t … give me Hank Jr. any day of the week. But I digress.
As the video shows, Mr. or Mrs. Big-Ass (literally) Black Bear tried to make it across a two-lane road, but the bruin didn’t quite make it. How fast was the car traveling? My guess is 45-50 mph.
I know firsthand that black bears are tough, but I was still surprised to see this one seemingly shake off the solid hit so soon. Did the bear eventually die from internal injuries? It’s certainly possible. But I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that the bruin suffered no more than some serious bruises.
Until next time … keep an eye on the road—and in the ditches.
