WILCOX CO., GA (WALB) -

Gregory Battle tells WALB that he was going from Ocilla  to Atlanta on Highway 129.

He was going through Abbeville to Hawkinsville when a bear suddenly ran out of the woods and into the road.

He said a car ahead of him hit the bear, and killed it.

He pulled off and took pictures with it, after contacting the Wilcox County Sheriff's Office.

Bears are a rare sight in Georgia.
