Red foxes have appeared once again around here also.
There have been two black bears killed in the past month that were hit by vehicles on Highway 64. One happened around 7 p.m. Dec. 6 near the Kingsboro exit in the eastbound lane and the other was hit a month earlier near the Edgecombe, Martin County line on the highway.
Monday another bear was hit in Crisp near the intersection of Highway 258 and 124. That bear wasn't killed and ran into the woods.
The bear that was hit Friday weighed approximately 978 pounds, according to the elderly couple who hit the bear and was nearly seven feet tall.
