3 Footed Black Bear!

I took these picture from my dining room window back in 2005. I could see this bear had a limp in the dark. Later, when I looked at the pics, I saw it was missing it's front foot. I'm thinking it may have lost it while it was a cub. It could still move pretty fast when I accidentally scared it!

Nice pics. Thanks. These wild animals live a very dangerous life. They suffer all kinds of accidents in the woods.

Re: 3 Footed Black Bear!

We had a bear with a paw missing at our camp in Potter County last year. We were up this weekend and he was back. My uncle figures he's pushing 300lbs. Amazing to see he could still do anything other bears could with only 3 paws.
