combine gets bear

6 posts in this topic

Has anybody heard of this? A farmer was combining corn by Rollingstone MN. when the combine tire fell in a hole witch was a bears den. From what I heard was the bear was in there and trying to dig itself out. They called a co and he told them to shoot it. From the story I heard it weighted close to 300 LBs,and it was a male. Not sure if it was true or not.

That was last year, and it actually happened in East Farmington Township in Wisconsin, contrary to what my friend told me who "knows the guy who was driving the combine by Rollingstone grin.gif"

It's on Snopes (Contact Us Please) com if you want to check out the story
