Check out this #2, Have you seen this yet???

35 posts in this topic

In Dunn County north of Menomonie (Connorsville) a farmer was combining corn and ran over this bear in a den. The den was a hole in the ground covered with corn stalks and the combine drove right over the den killing the bear. This story was confirmed by Steve Olson today, Steve works for St. Croix County Land and Water Conservation Department and lives about 2-miles from the farm where the bear was killed. Steve had a large bear on trail camera a couple of years ago, this may or may not have been the bear.

Hanging weight (no insides) of this bear was 618

pounds. Rough measurements from head to tail (no legs) 7 feet and around

the heart girth he was 6 ft around.

Came from my brother who lives and sells feed in Dunn County.

Not to be confused with the mountain lions, deer in a combine, and monster Amish Buck shot near Greenbush.

If you haven't seen this yet, maybe I redeemed myself a little bit.

that's a beast! Need to watch out though, DNR may start making farmers need permits for combining!

OK i did some research, looks to be true, BUT, the story i read said he didnt run it over, the bear was digging its den and he didnt see it and the outside tine on the combine went through its ribs.

The fuzzy edges on the bear make it look photo shopped. Stfcatfish from the photography forum has a good eye for fakes see what he thinks.

If I'm not mistaken, I think I just heard the woman ask the bear to turn and cough. Hans

YES THIS STORY IS TRUE! I live in the area, know who the people are, it's 100% true. My dad has seen a lot of bears this fall while combining also, hasn't managed to get one though! This bear is a monster!

Yeah, actually the picture is real. All you paranoid people on here make me laugh. You think everything is photoshopped. Just because it didn't happen to you, you think it is fake. This is why my husband and I refuse to EVER post a picture on here if we happen to shoot a big critter because some on here would whine and cry that it's photoshopped or fake. Well guess what, some things in life are real. Some of you are good for a laugh, thats for sure.

I am waiting for some good hard evidence. Hard to dispute how many farses are sent around. It just doesnt look real.

The story may be real. But something of that magnitude must have something more for a story behind it somewhere if its true.

I vouch that a very large black bear ended up hanging in the meat locker in Augusta WI. As for the actual size, story, and photo posted here - I don't know.

Must be some better photos, hopefully some will surface soon. I don't know why anyone would mess with a photo of an already large bear, but anything goes on the net these days.

fishtrapgirl - can you get some more photos?

Here's another monster hit by vehicle in the central part of scoonie - also not far from my stomping grounds. I'll vouch again for this one.

BTW - such a beast from WI really shouldn't be that much of a shocker if you do some research on record black bears.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
