LEELANAU COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- The Leelanau County Road Commission removed a bear from the road Wednesday morning.

The young, female bear was hit and killed by a vehicle on M-22 near Basch Road.

The road commission is asking everyone to slow down and keep your eyes open for anything that might dart into the road.

The driver of the vehicle was not injured.

We received a call today to pick up this young female bear that had been hit on M-22 near Basch Rd.

Picking up any animal that has been killed is never something we want to do, so please slow down a bit and keep your eyes peeled for anything that may dart into your lane.

We were glad to hear the person who hit the bear was not injured.
