Just the bear factsPosted Wednesday, July 30, 2008, at 6:56 PM
Take a look at this bear with a jar stuck on its head.
Would you have shot it, as Minnesota wildlife officials did when it wandered into a small town?
This made me wonder what would happen if a bear wandered into Bell Buckle (they'd probably start an annual observance of The Day Yogi Bear Came To Town) or Wartrace during one of their many annual festivities.
I'd tend to think the Minnesota wildlife people could have shot it with a tranquilizer gun. But maybe I'm too soft on animals, especially considering that bears usually kill humans without a second thought.
