    Its no mystery why we hate bears, Yogi the bear convinced an entire generation that bears are out to steal picnic baskets and annoy the local park rangers. Smokey the bear came in at a time of increased teen aged rebellion against authority, although he meant well the general attitude was "I aint gonna listen to no bear about fire safety".

    No need to worry about bears in Iowa. The tigers ate them.

    Well to paraphrase Elmer Keith on handguns and bears when a bear attacks...Carry the most powerful caliber in a handgun that you can shoot well and a proper bullet for the job. Stick the gun in the bears mouth and keep pulling the trigger till you no longer have a hand. Hopefully that'll work.

    Ah, yep. Cartoon bears are contributing to teen delinquency and animal bigotry nationwide.

    Ultimately Booboo is the victim.

    Apparently my great great uncle had a pet bear when he lived in northern MI. I saw a picture of him and the bear taken in the 50s. It was definitely still a bigger cub in the picture but he presumably had it into adulthood until one day it wandered off after a few years of living in his shed and not being forced to stay.
