It is always a possibility to have a traffic accident with any kind of animal but for the people involved in this accident, to think that videoing the consequences is more important rather than calling the authorities for immediate help is very disturbing to say the least.

In the video the bear manages to cross the barrier with an obvious broken leg and other injuries. Although the authorities have searched for the bear it has not been found and one would presume that it would have died by now
