Crashing into a Bear on a Bicycle

This was not meant to be a blog solely based around bear stories. However, here is another bear story. In one of the more ambiguously titled articles by the Associated Press: Teacher OK after crashing into bear on a bicycle, we learn of a Missoula man who, well, crashed into a bear, on a bicycle.

"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."
