Bear found dead in east Illinois

September 18, 2008 at 10:13 PM

HUGO (AP)—Wildlife officials are trying to figure out where a young black bear found dead in east-central Illinois came from.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Department says someone found the bear, a male weighing 150 to 200 pounds, Tuesday night near Hugo. The small town is about 30 miles south of Champaign.

Illinois Department of Natural Resources spokesman Chris McCloud says the find was odd, to say the least. He doesn’t believe the bear wandered into the area on its own.

McCloud says investigators will examine the contents of the bear’s stomach to determine whether it was wild. Illinois isn’t believed to have wild bears.

Douglas County Sheriff Charlie McGrew says someone in nearby Tuscola reported in the spring his dogs tangled with a bear or a cougar

the bear came from Penn. it was hauled in by a local wanting to pull a joke on one of his friends and it stunk to bad so he dumped it on his ground which we farm.
