Visitor Tips and News About Gas Station Black Bear
Inside a BP station on US highway 8 we stumbled across a 660 lb. (dressed weight) stuffed Black Bear in a display case.[Dave, 08/12/2011]
The man who shot the bear owns the BP station. He shot it in 2009. It's only five pounds lighter than the world record stuffed black bear, which is also in a display case in Wisconsin.
