The heaviest black bear ever recorded in Pennsylvania was shot and killed just north of Fernwood Resort in Pike County on Monday.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission confirmed that David Price of Barrett Township killed the 17-year-old bruin, which had an estimated live weight of 879 pounds. The bear had a field-dressed weight of 744 pounds.

Price's bear was 15 pounds heavier than a bear which was killed in 2003 weighing 864 pounds. That bear was also shot in Pike County.

“This bear could be No. 1 in the world,” said PGC Information and Education Supervisor Tim Conway.

After 60 days, the bear's skull will be measured to be determined where it will stand in the record books. The world record skull is over 23 inches, Conway said.

Attempts to reach Price were unsuccessful.
