This is pretty interesting - 39 yr old black bear dies of old age in Minnesota - see link
Pretty amazing. Smart old bear.
Very interesting. Had no idea they could live that long.
That’s really neat

Amazing that in the entire study that she was the first to die of old age.
Did you notice that article was from 2013? I’m surprised that hasn’t come up before - cool story
Did you notice at the bottom all the clueless anti-hunters bashing hunters? What the heck was that about. It died of natural causes not a hunter.
Cool story, wonder if she ever had cubs that they know of.

According to the article, she had 23 cubs.
