Deputy Jason Harvey was driving down Highway 127 on Singal Mountain in Sequatchie County, Tennessee. From out of nowhere a black bear is in the middle of the road. Harvey hit the bear, knocking the bear forward 25-30 ft. The bear regains his stride and takes off. Harvey stops his vehicle, which received minimal damage with the protective cage on the front bumper. His vehicle camera caught the entire footage of the hit.
Sheriff Ronnie Hitchcock says there have been a lot of bears in the area, and this one was more than likely going after a bird feeder in someone's yard. Don't put food out where bears can get it. From Mail Online .
