Banks County Sheriff Charles Chapman said several calls came in to the Banks County Sheriff’s Office around 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 2, reporting that a black bear had been struck by a car on Interstate 85.
Deputies responded to the area of the 152 mile marker and found the dead bear on the north bound side of the interstate. Chapman said the bear was headed towards the south bound side of Interstate 85. The vehicle that struck the bear did not stop.
The game warden was called to the scene. Chapman said someone from Toccoa came down and picked the bear up to study the body to determine the age of the bear.

Hey Bubba, I heared that sumbudy runned over uh bar down on thuh inner state -n- thar ain't nuthin' goin' on here in Ta'co-wer. Lets you -n- me git on down thar -n- see if we kin figger outs how old that critter wuz fer thuh law man.
"Batman, this is Sheriff Chapman in Banks County...doing just fine, thanks...how's your momma and them doing? When you're finished with the Joker in Toccoa, could you come down our way and see how old this dead bear was?"
(man on the street somewhere in Toccoa) "Excuse me, excuse me? Would anyone here like to drive down to Banks County and tell the good Sheriff how old a dead bear was?"
Think you could be a BIT more specific? "Somebody from Toccoa"??? Thanks for the "GREAT" job of reporting.
Typical moron didn't realize that it wasn't Toccoa that was being made fun of, it was the reporter. I can't believe everyone from Toccoa is as stupid. Who knows, maybe they are all idiotic uneducated red-necked inbred backwoods hicks instead of the gentile and friendly people that I'd always thought they were. No, I can't believe that's true. You have to figure that there is always at least one person who has to embarrass everyone else in a public forum.
BEAR'S A$$,,,,NO ONE WOULD KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THIS BEAR...Except some one who wants a new rug,,,,,,do ya think the sheriff got a new rug,,,,,anyway I agree with the who,what ,where,how and when/what for that makes a good story...
That was funny....Gave me a good laugh today, #1 Anonymous! I agree, but the reporter probably couldn't get much more info from them maybe(you know how that goes round here. I thought the same thing when I read it; I was like, "Someone from Toccoa...Who is this person & how do we know he or she can be trusted with this bear...Is this a professional 'bear age estimator'?" It has me worried indeed! I'm serious...I am not joking; this really has me worried!
