Two people were injured after the motorcycle they were on struck and killed a black bear just south of Big Sky Sunday evening.
The Highway Patrol responded to a call on U.S. Highway 191 around 5:15 p.m after people in a nearby car, and a second motorcyclist riding behind the couple witnessed the accident.
The two riders were flown to Bozeman Deaconess Hospital, their names and conditions are not yet known.
Fish, Wildlife and Parks biologists picked up the carcass of the black bear, which was younger than 2 years old.
