Of all of the bizarre stories I have read about bears, this one may top the list.
Ashley Swendsen, a 26-year-old, pregnant Colorado native was out for a walk along a creek when she was followed by a cinnamon-phase black bear. As she retreated to a nearby road she was struck by a car.
Swendsen, was not injured but was taken to a nearby hospital as a precaution, where she was treated and released.
The bear was later captured and euthanized by Colorado Department of Wildlife.
