Heard any good animal stories lately? I like animal stories and especially about the ones that are more my size. Bears always seem to be doing comical things like the one that was rummaging around the campground last summer and one gal decided to scare it off. She woke the whole campground up by hollering and waving and sure enough, the bear ran off aways. When he reached the edge of the clearing, he turned around, stood on his hind legs, growled and waved back! By the time the cops got there, everybody in camp was calling that gal the fastest bear trainer they'd ever seen!

Well, we have another story: There have been reports of a bear toward the west end of town, so the local police got a coupla rubber shotgun shells from the game warden in case they have to scare it off. Sure enough, one morning a lady called and Mike & Jerry responded without sirens. They agreed that Mike would run around the house and drive the bear out, and Jerry would pop him with a rubber bullet. Well, Jerry got the gun ready and Mike headed around the lady's house -- just got out of sight & suddenly Mike yelled "Jeeze!!" so Jerry stepped around just in time to see a scene out of the Keystone Cops. The bear was fleeing in one direction, Mike was fleeing in the other, and the OTHER bear that Mike had tripped on was going in yet another direction! :)

Afew years ago my dog woke me up a barkin at something, expecting to find a cat or possum or something I eased out of the house and was going to see what it had treed, as I went around the corner of the house without turning on my flashlite, I walked right into something big and harry and almost had a runaway,I went one way and it went the other, turned out to be the neighbors pet cow, it was solid black and was happily eating one of my bushes untill I bumped into it. it may as well have been a bear, it couldn't have scared me any more than that cow.
