Bear Scare? Or Temptation to Wrestle?


That's the photo that BSO is circulating ostensibly to convince people in the Weston area to be extremely careful lest they be mauled by this huge, aggressive, OK, extremely small and harmless-looking bear

I can't even type that word with a straight face. Are we sure this isn't a big badger? I haven't seen a less intimidating "bear" since this guy. I'm more worried that the sheriff's warning will have the opposite effect: that a couple good ol' boys will go hunting with a 12-pack and a video camera so one of them can challenge the bear to some Greco-Roman wrestling. If so, your local Juice blogger is willing to post the footage, no matter how grisly.
