A black bear nicknamed Yogi was struck and killed Tuesday on a highway ramp in the Grand Rapids area, police said.
The bear, an adult male weighing roughly 250 pounds, had been spotted for a few years in Walker. He was hit by a large truck on a ramp leading to westbound Interstate 96.
“There were no injuries to the occupants of the vehicle. … RIP Big Fella,” Walker police said on Facebook.
Police said they were in regular contact last year with state wildlife officials about Yogi’s presence.
“Yogi was a wanderer, and black bears can have a home territory of several miles,” police said. (AP)
