Police Help A Black Bear

A few weeks ago my father encountered a black bear while at a club be belongs to.  It is in an area that is many acres of undeveloped woods.  They both minded their own business.  The family joked about my father only having a staple gun in hand.  A staple gun would have been unless had he needed to defend himself.  Apparently, the bear was limping a bit and had very distinguishing physical characteristics.

Last night my parents called and were all excited because when they pulled out of their driveway, they were stopped by 2 state troopers who had their cars set in the 3 lane road stopping traffic (photo above is the exact location).  Crossing the road was the same bear.  It was 10-12 miles from the place my father saw it almost 2 weeks ago.  My parents were going on and on about it being the same bear and how it was possible as a bears territory is large, etc.  My father was so sure is was the same bear.  

So I wondered...isn't the fact that 2 state troopers were escorting a bear across a highway more interesting than the fact that it was the same bear?  How did the police know it was crossing at that time?  Hmmm?

I am inspired to go paint a bear.  I'll let you know how it comes out.

It's a lovely strech of road, Sue! I can see why the bear likes it there. And yes, there is the question of why the patrol was shutting down traffic for him lol I'm amazed that your dad recognized him! It's a great story :)
