A big Minnesota bear story with legs, but not many teeth

Nate Rich, 21, killed his first bear a few weeks ago, and the story has legs, if no teeth.

That’s because the bear weighed 640 pounds, putting it even with the fifth-heaviest bear ever killed in Minnesota’s unofficial record books. And it was missing all of its front teeth.

“There’s been a lot of talk about this bear in the area,” said Dan Smith, who runs Wildlife Re-Creations Taxidermy, where Rich has taken the bear for a half body mount. “How it ate with all of its front teeth missing, it’s just interesting. All it had was its grinders.”
