La Voz de Galicia has an interesting article today that tells of a bear that was killed on the highway between Ponferrada and O Cebreiro. This is pilgrim territory, so I thought I would create a post on this here.
Bears are not common in this area, and this is the first time one has been killed by a car. The bear itself was about 1,80 meters tall and had a weight of about 100 kg.
The exact location of the accident was at Trabadelo in the province of León, about 4 km from O Cebreiro.
