I'll just add one more note to this whole Bear saga.
I think it's interesting to note that all over the news they keep saying things like "If you see the bear do not approach it or try and provoke it" while the Animal Control Guy told me to CHASE IT. Run at it with a stick...
It's a good thing I was not on TV because I probably would have told that whole story.
I'm starting to get the feeling that the Animal Control Man didn't like me.
