Vehicular bear-slaughter

It was first reported near the beginning of my shift. After searching down the road, we found nothing. And then a call came in of an incident in the other direction, so we turned around. At a bear-jam an hour later a motorcyclist with jovial charm told me of the location and guided a fellow ranger, Brady, to the scene of the crime. I stood by this bear for over an hour to keep the tourists from doing something foolish and coyotes from making a mess. Such a shame. The bastards did not even report that they hit something. You can feel the fall of karma here in the Park whenever this happens. Note to tourists: PLEASE SLOW DOWN, and keep your eyes on the road.

This female black bear was killed by a hit and run near one of the roads.
