Nine cases of black bears missing their front legs have been confirmed in North Carolina, with five of these bizarre occurrences reportedly happening near the city of Arden.

Help Asheville Bears, a nonprofit organization raising awareness about the strange incidents, has been documenting the worrisome phenomenon and sharing news updates with local residents on Facebook.

The most recent case was confirmed on Thursday, according to WBTV.

Residents in North Caroline are concerned for the bears, sharing videos of three legged bears and their cubs with local news station News ABC 13.

Hong Kong police ban mass protest over safety fears

Hong Kong police ban mass protest over safety fears Hong Kong police have banned a mass pro-democracy rally from going ahead on Saturday over public safety concerns, organisers said, after last weekend saw some of the worst violence in three months of political unrest in the financial hub. On that occasion, the initial rally in a Hong Kong park was approved by authorities but protesters later defied a ban to march through the city. The protests were ignited when the city's Beijing-backed government tried to pass a bill allowing extraditions to mainland China, but have evolved into a wider call for greater democracy and an investigation into allegations of police brutality.

Sometimes dogs limp after they 've been lying down for some time. What gives? This limping shouldn't be confused with a dog stretching after getting up. Some dogs will stretch their back legs straight and then drag them for just a little—silly dogs!

In the video, a mother bear can be seen with her two cubs near a residential area visibly limping and missing one of her appendages.

Justin McVey of the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission told News ABC 13: 'We have more bears. Our population has been increasing.'

Wildlife officials say a possible cause for the injured bears may be human interaction.

McVey told News ABC 13: 'Bears get hit by cars all the time, and unfortunately bears with three legs is not uncommon. They adapt very well, and they can live a successful life, even with just three legs.'

Advocacy group Help Asheville Bears has a different theory.

In a Facebook post, the group wrote: 'With the 9 bears that we have confirmed are missing part of a front limb but having no other noticeable injuries in the counties of Buncombe and Henderson, we at Help Asheville Bears still do not accept the theory that the causes are most likely auto accidents involving bears (implying also that the bear then walks off and loses their front leg).'

Tropical storm traps 18 in Taiwan before heading to China

Tropical storm traps 18 in Taiwan before heading to China TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — A landslide triggered by a tropical storm stranded 18 people in Taiwan on Saturday as the storm headed for China's southeastern coast. Tropical Storm Bailu brought heavy rain and winds up to 118 kilometers (73 miles) per hour as it crossed the southern half of Taiwan. Fourteen tourists were among those trapped after the landslide in Hualien county. About 450 people were evacuated around the island and 12,000 households were without power late Saturday afternoon.

Guirec Soudee is sailing solo around the world with a chicken. Soudée and Monique have been across the Atlantic in their sailboat Yvinec, spent some time in the Caribbean and Greenland, picked their way through the Northwest Passage, and are currently sailing off the coast of Alaska.

In another Facebook post, they share photos and information about possible bear traps that can sever a bears leg.

They wrote: 'After just a few minutes of searching, we found several traps for sale online that are capable of taking a bear's leg off or doing great harm to the leg where the bear would be forced to remove it's own leg to escape from the trap.'

One such trap is called 'The Knife,'

They report receiving four reports of bear traps in the area and are encouraging residents to notify the Law Enforcement and Wildlife.

In a poster updated on August 24, Help Asheville Bears outlines all the confirmed incidents, including those of mother bears and cubs.

Still, wildlife officials say the cause is most likely car accidents and the bears are relatively fine after the ordeal.

'They will generally kind of move away from people, get to a quiet place, rest and recuperate. Generally those wounds will heal on their own, and then they're able to go out and live a normal life,' McVey told ABC 13 News.

Help Asheville Bears is offering a $10,000 reward for anyone with information that could lead to the identification and conviction of the suspects committing the alleged acts.
