Let's Try Laughter
So don't think about that - read this SFGate article about the Lake Tahoe bear (700 lbs) that has been breaking into people's houses. The comments are the great part. Consider the locale, and feast on such stuff as...
At least make it fair. Give the bear a gun so he can have the chance to defend himself against the hunter.
That's right, shoot the "unusually smart" bear.Several people have shot at the bear. But they are not named:
We are surely the only things that matter on this planet.
Humans are so arrogant, short-sighted, delusional and self-serving it makes me hope that aliens come to earth and enslave us for being such a ridiculous species.
Lackey said one resident reported shooting the bear right between the eyes with a .44 Magnum after the hungry giant lifted a sliding-glass door off the tracks and started toward him. The bullet glanced off and sent the bear whirling around the kitchen, and a second shot prompted him to scramble out the back door, according to local newspaper accounts.Because there is nothing worse than defending yourself?
A Diamond Peak, Nev., resident said he shot the bear in the back with a .30-30 rifle when the animal charged him just after Thanksgiving.
"I've seen bears before, but this was the biggest bear I've ever seen," said the man, who did not want to be identified out of fear that animal lovers would harass him. "I can tell you this thing was nasty looking, with scars on its face and a gash on its neck."
I'd say it's just a prelude to a culling of the gene pool, but these are the folks that hold most of the political power in the country--they'll make sure the bear eats them last!
Neil - I don't think this is self-hatred. I think this is a case of people just maul at others for fun. Bear commenters, I guess.
This person has never been face to face with a hungry, rogue bear. Bears who scavenge on human food and garbage are extremely dangerous. This bear would normally be in hibernation by now, so there is something screwed up about it. The sooner the authorities get this one out of circulation the better.
Some of these earth first flower children all believe the Disney
movies are documentaries. Such loving, harmless creatures they all are. In truth a bear is nothing but an appetite dresseed in a fur coat. Their sole job from early spring to hibernation is to put on fat. Nothing else matters. Don't get between them and their food. Or between a female and her cubs.
The more serious problem, of course, is that there are way too many idiot humans in the state.
