Hank the Tank how much does the bear weigh?
Reported by New York Times on Hank the Tank said that the black bear weighed 500 pounds.
Hank got this big not from a normal diet of berries but from eating food intended for humans.
The accessibility of leftovers and scraps drew Hank to places where food had been thrown away – places where bears weren’t necessarily welcome.
Tweets from an NBC-news affiliate showed that Hank had robbed several homes.
Some community members are showing affection for Hank and desire to remove a bear trap set up for Hank.
The New York Times concluded with a statement from a bear conservation expert, who said, “Why must this large effigy die?”
