Bicyclist Strikes Bear - Both SurviveMISSOULA, Mont. (Sept. 10) - A middle school teacher suffered some bruising and a big scratch on his back after he struck a bear while riding his bicycle to school.
Jim Litz said he was traveling about 25 mph Monday morning when he came upon a rise and spotted a black bear about 10 feet in front of him. He didn't have time to stop and T-boned the bruin.
He tumbled over the handlebars, his helmet hit the bear's back and the two went cartwheeling down the road.
The bear rolled over Litz's head, cracking his helmet, and scratched his back before scampering up a hill above the road.
Litz's wife drove by shortly after the crash and took her husband to the hospital. He hoped to be able to return to teaching science at Target Range Middle School on Friday.
Besides people asking me stupid questions when I fish, the one thing that really gets me upset is bears stealing shit. This isn't the first time I have heard of a bear bike napping case. A few years ago during a triathlon a bear did the same thing.
DENVER – Triathlete Sabrina Oei was speeding downhill at nearly 40 mph, cycling through the Colorado foothills, when a black bear brought her to a sudden, painful, stop.
Oei (pronounced “OU'-eee”) slammed broadside into the bear when it wandered onto the race course Sunday. She went airborne, then slid on her back across the pavement.Everybody knows bears are the laziest animal in the forest. They are just too lazy to walk so that is why they steal people's bikes.
Bears will do anything for a free ride. They will even hop in a taxi.
Or use other animals for transportation.
Why are bears so lazy? Because all day long they just forge the forest looking for psychedelic mushrooms.
Bears get whacked out on drugs then play on things like trampolines.
Or they just sit there in our hammocks.
I guess having a drugged out bear in your hammock is better than having a drugged out bear going for a swim. Because then you would have to go save the dumb ass bear's life, because it can't swim.Bears are scumbags, nothing more than trouble.
