Bear road kills in Virginia are increasing as the animals cross highways looking for food.
Officials with the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries say 58 bears have been killed on Virginia roads this year, up from 38 in both 2009 and 2011.
A statewide acorn shortage is causing hungry bears to venture farther into human civilization, leading to more sightings and accidents.
