Bear Damage

Never thought i would have seen it, but a mare horse killed by a bear, happened yesterday, night, right on the lycoming/columbia county border.She had a foal so my belief is the bear got too close, foal was untouched. Saw the pad marks, nice big boy, at least as wide as a dollar bill.

Anybody can shoot deer on the farm ground....You earn it in the mountains.......

Re: Bear Damage

It's not really all that uncommon.It doesn't happen every day but it does happen.I have a good friend that had a horse killed by a bear a few years ago.

Did the bear eat any of the horse or did it just kill it?

I've never heard of it in PA but it doesn't really surprise me. A bear probably wouldn't catch a horse if it wasn't for the fences.
