Lacerated pumpkin

A local market had a large (300 lb/150 kg) pumpkin on display in their store. What's unusual are the claw marks from a young black bear (of which a photo is revealed under the sheet - see a similar wiki photo). The pumpkin patch is at the back of the property near the woods and the farmers set up a motion-sensitive camera to capture a shot of him. It worked. They got a nice, full shot of a young black bear. I put my hand on the claw mark and it was as big as my hand - my fingers resting almost perfectly sized to each claw mark. You don't see that at the supermarket every day!
