Photo: 780 Pound Black Bear Taken in Eastern North Carolina Hunt

The following cell phone photo is from the message board nchuntandfish and purportedly shows a 780 lb black bear that was shot and killed on December 14, 2012 in Washington County, NC.  To help better demonstrate the size of the bear, the poster pointed out that the hunter in the photo is over 6' and 300lbs. 

The world record for an American black bear is 880 pounds and was set in November 1998 from a 10+ year old black bear shot in North Carolina.
