Bear Attack

From what I read the bear was being chased by hounds and got feed up with running. These bear don't follow a script when they are encountered. They don't always take the submissive role or run from every man. He probably decided enough was enough and decided to stand his ground.
People in Washington are having a rough time with thier wildlife these past weeks. They are looking for a coyote that has been attacking kids in Bellingham out side of Seattle also.
Bad Karma in Washington????

Bear Attack

Black bears and people, an neverending story:
About eight years ago, a good size black bear decided he was going to pay a visit to a very populated area of town. It dismantled a few BBQs, compost carts etc andthe calls to the Police were overwelming. Sure enough when we got there(police) and Natural Resources arrived, Mr Bear was sitting on the sidewalk of a busy two lane highway. Now, you would think that people would keep a safe distance when they seen the bear, and members nearby with shotguns. Not a chance. Trying to get closefor a picture, dragging the kids closer to get a look. After about an hour the bear wondered off, back again ten minutes later and gone again.
This went on for three days, wouldn't go near the baited trap Natural resources set up..Eventually he disappeared.
Now if we shot the bear(was my call) there wold be an outrage: WHATTHE HELL DID THEY DO THAT FOR, IT WASN"T HURTING ANYONE ?
And if the bear hurt someone; WHAT THE HELL ARE WE PAYING THOSE FOOLS FOR ANYWAY,WERE THEY TOO AFRAID TO SHOT IT?

Not a WIN
