Berkshire bear nose missing due to probable fight (video)
Over the past few months we have shared a number of wildlife videos. Most of the videos were taken in the county of Berkshire. As we mentioned in a previous article, the summer of 2021 has been dubbed “the summer of the bear” in the Berkshires. There were plenty of videos of bears wandering around, foraging for food, climbing trees, scratching their backs, and even showing curiosity as they approached decks and porches. These videos were shared on numerous Berkshire County Facebook group pages.
Another video recently shared on Facebook shows what appears to be an injured black bear eating blueberries high up in the county town of Berkshire in Peru, then wandering through the woods. In the video you can see where the bear has markings and missing fur. Additionally, he has significant damage to his muzzle area as it looks like his nose has been torn off. Based on the video description, the bear is believed to have had a fight with another male bear. According to the Mass Dept of Fish & Wildlife, the injured bear will most likely survive. You can watch this video below.
Some of the comments on the video are included below:
-Wow. If we haven’t seen it, we forget what’s really going on there. Poor thing.
-Very big bear can’t imagine the size of the other bear that challenged him.
-I wouldn’t want to meet him alone in the woods.
