    Badly wounded bear between White Pass and Red Pass (Glacier Peak area)
« on: September 22, 2010, 05:00:16 PM » Quote 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A few days ago I was hiking the Pacific Crest Trail and saw a black bear with what appeared to be a broken front leg. He was very near the trail and only about 1/2 mile from a trail crew camp. He obviously was having a rough time, and I think he poses a potential threat to both the hikers and the trail crew.

I'm from Alaska so I don't know the current bear seasons and whatnot, but I hope someone in the area can go in there and find and finish him. Seems like the right thing for the bear and the people using the area.

I am an active hunter as well as a hiker, so this isn't hunter bashing. Still, I hope we will all try to think twice, get in close, and fire those clean, one-shot kills from a solid rest.

The wounded bear was about 1/2 mile north of White Pass along the Pacific Crest Trail, feeding on berries out in the open.

Looks like someone took a pair of brush clippers to that poor thing. Seems awefully clean cut. Maybe a trap? I dont see that as a bullet wound...who knows?!

My bro got one a few years ago, only had three legs...tough animals.

I am not opposed to golf, for I suspect it keeps armies of the unworthy from discovering deer.

I am thinking he chewed them off. 

Was the only toe remaining broken at all?

I am wondering if he was caught in a snare? 

Or maybe he damaged the toes some how and chewed them off due to irritation.
