WILSON, Wyo. — A black bear was struck and killed on Highway 390 early this morning.
Wyoming Game & Fish Regional Wildlife Supervisor Brad Hovinga confirmed that a Game & Fish warden picked up the black bear this morning. The bear had been hit by a car.
“Seems like what happens around here a lot,” Hovinga said.
The bear was dead when the warden arrived, but an eyewitness told Buckrail he had seen it moving after it was hit.
The warden who picked up the bear is already in the backcountry for the rest of the week, so Hovinga didn’t have any more details to report. Eyewitnesses say the collision occurred in the “Windy Mile” of the Village Road — right where the speed limit changes to 55 mph.
