Road Killed Bears

I am a newbie about Pa bears so this came as a surpirse to me. I have see two road killed bears in Clearfield Co in the past 7 days. The first one was on I-80 between Dubois and the Clearfield exit about 7 days ago. The second one was on Pa Rt 153 about 5 miles north of Penfield. This one must have been hit by a coal truck becuase it was almost torn in half. Gave some thought to grabbing the head for a mount at the cabin but was afraid I would be the next fatality from the coral trucks.

Re: Road Killed Bears

Good thing you didn't pick the head up because that's against the law.

Re: Road Killed Bears

Hope this question does not turn into an "Issue" on the board... What is the legal or correct disposition of road killed carcasses?

Re: Road Killed Bears

The PGC makes the legal or correct disposition of a road killed bear. You may of course call the, report it, and tell you them you would lke to but a permit for it after they pick it up.

Re: Road Killed Bears

Deer are a different permit and you can pick it up and have 24 hours to contact the PGC for a free permit. Antlers however must be trned over to the PGC or you can buy them for 10.00 a pont.

Coral trucks! No wonder the reefs are disappearing!
