Police Help A Black Bear
Last night my parents called and were all excited because when they pulled out of their driveway, they were stopped by 2 state troopers who had their cars set in the 3 lane road stopping traffic (photo above is the exact location). Crossing the road was the same bear. It was 10-12 miles from the place my father saw it almost 2 weeks ago. My parents were going on and on about it being the same bear and how it was possible as a bears territory is large, etc. My father was so sure is was the same bear.
So I wondered...isn't the fact that 2 state troopers were escorting a bear across a highway more interesting than the fact that it was the same bear? How did the police know it was crossing at that time? Hmmm?
I am inspired to go paint a bear. I'll let you know how it comes out.
