Bear shooting clarification
The photo of a large black bear in the Aug. 1 Times-Courier feature story, “Bears on the move,” was not shot with a gun by Dan Pool. Pool, the managing editor of the Pickens County Progress, clarified after the article was published he “shot” the bear with his camera from a car window.
“The bear was so big, one of the biggest I have ever seen,” Pool said. “I spotted him standing in a power line cutover about 50 yards from the road. The only danger presented was me getting rear-ended after I stopped in the road.”
