    There has been too many road kills this year. Its seems too many people are driving over the speed limit or this wouldn’t be so bad. And why is it they “Hit and Run”?
    Please drive defensibly!

    Response to Janet,
    Animals are around because of easy food. Apple trees, garbage, etc.
    That bear was probably shot. If a car hit it you would have seen the car, a tow truck, and a bear in that driveway.
    As far as speeding, have you been driving on Issaquah-Hobart road in the last two years?
    I rarely even have a chance to reach the speed limit on that road. People drive slower on it because of all the driveway’s.

    I saw that bear driving to work that morning. Looking at the way it was laying there, there’s no way that it was a hit & run. It was definitely shot which I thought was illegal. The bear was face down flat on his belly as though it was shot standing up and fell face down. If it was hit, there would have been damage to the car and would not have been laying there the way it was. It would be on the street and why would anyone drag the bear to the driveway. Really, really sad that people are so cruel. We are in their territory, not the other way around. We tear down the forest and build houses… many of these wild animals are just looking for food.
