ran over a bears foot today

I was cruising about 50mph down a country road this morning when a bear (about 250-300lbs) came out of the woods a full stride. I thought it was going to slam into my drivers door but the timing was so that its left foot was in front of my rear drivers wheel and his head slammed into my wheel when we met. I felt the bump of going over its foot and I could see him bounce off and sort of continue across the road into the woods. To may amazement, no damaged had been done, only dirt smudges on my tire. Just glad I wasn't driving my old mazda miata I use to own.

Haha nice. That's a fairly medium size for a black bear around here. Lucky it wasn't one of the bigger ones. 500-600lbs lol.

I had a deer run into my passenger door while on the interstate with my Nissan a couple years ago. People think my story is crazy but your story wins lol
