Well, today's morning and blog took a quite different turn than I had expected when I arrived into the newsroom.We received a tip from a motorist that a black bear was dead on the side of the road on Route 95 near Route 31.

Since that is not too far from our studios, I took a ride over to see what happened and snap some pictures.  For somebody who does not like blood and guts like myself, it was quite gruesome.  But I did make it through.  The story is posted with a gallery of photos, which again, are very graphic.
