  • OT Hey honey wanna see my bear

    Well the small town (Population of about 4000) I grew up in just hit the national news. My brother heard the story as he was sitting in an airplane in chicago. Happened last week and was in the local paper.

    A local gentleman has a collection of wild animals, bears, big cats, monkeys... He has permits and is leagal. Well that's what is claimed any way.
    A couple of young (mid 20's) ladies at the local tavern were escorted by another patron to this gentlemans farm after a few drinks to go see the bears. One of the ladies stuck her hand in the cage to pet one of the bears, and guess what! The bear thought it was food. Mauled her arm and had to have it amputated at the elbow.

    So I'm trying to figure out what is more stupid letting someone have wild animals like bears as pets even if he has permits or sticking your hand into a bear cage?

    By the way, this is not a game farm or Zoo that might be doing something positive to help endangered species, its just a guy that can afford to keep some wild animals and does.

    Picture taken by my wife.

    It's Dufus, suddenly realizing that it may not be a good idea to be so close to four young hungry grizzlys. Run Dufus!

      I heard the story the park warden told us about a mother smearing honey on her little girls hands for a picture of a black bear licking it off. Sure enough the lil girl was mauled. The mother was not jailed.

      People are by percentage some of the most non-thinking animals on this earth.

        Good thing he's close to his car. Bears out run people no problem.

          Stupid people, near Portland Or. a couple of people are under arrest for letting a dog maul their two children. This was not the first time, it had happened befor and the kid had been taken to the hospital. The dog has been put down.
          I believe the parents should be put down also. The parrents reluctantly agreed to let the dog killed. D_M some parrents.

            Got coerced into a trip to the game farm by wife #1. Got bored ooing and ahhhing at the elephant, so I wondered off. Coming upon the tiger cage, I noticed it pacing in an agitated manner. After a very close visual inspection of the walls and roof for security, I still held back a bit and watched. Two old dears in their summer frocks came along and stood right in front of the pacing tiger, making those noises ladies make. Darned if that critter didn't pace backwards towards them, lift it's tail and urinate with magnum force at them. The stream went far past them, although enough got 'em to qualify as a good soaking. At least 40-50 psi. If those cats have that much power at the back end, just imagine what the front end can do. I guess those "Man Eaters of the Kumoan" stories are true...

              There is a true story to this my father used to work in the parks as a machanic. A park warden he knew well was suspended without pay for stopping a father that had put honey on his dauthers face and was going to put the little girl (about 5) with the bear. While mum took pictures. They reported and pressed charges against the warden because he used "bad language" to them. He was 6 months before he was back on the job. This was back in the late 70's.

                    Then there was the dumba__ in Yellowstone, that wanted a picture standing by the buffalo. Gave wifey the vidoe camera, wandered over to the buffalo, put his had on the buff's shoulder and surprise, surprise,and a flick of the buff's head left him hanging in the adjacent tree... Upside down and unconcious. But what a great video!!!

                          And then there was this Dumb electrician traveling through the smokies on a 1949 panhead (junk) chopper. (late 70s)

                          He had a sultry dark haired sioux indian girl with him. He had just stopped and was spreading a picnic out on a table when he noticed a black bear standing up at the edge of the clearing. The bear came running and the harley rider got to kick-cranking.. Left the pull-off at 50mph..

                          Ohh yeah.. that was me and my first real live-in woman.. She was on her period and the bear really noticed. The way he was running toward us I really don't think it was the sandwiches he smelled.

                          I didn't think I wanted to pet the bear. I growed up in the real world.

                            D Thomas,
                            I visited the Grizzly store in PA a few weeks ago does that make you feel better? Bought a surface plate and few other odds and ends but no machine tools. Sorry to get your hopes up.
