The black bear made famous for falling from a tree on the University of Colorado campus died Thursday after he was struck by two cars on the interstate.
The Colorado Parks and Wildlife department picked up the bear and immediately identified him as the infamous flyer at CU.
Spokesperson Jennifer Churchill said the following on the sad occasion:
It's a bummer.
It's so hard to go through this and not be able to give these bears a good place to live.
This is definitely a big bummer…we'll miss this bear!
