Bear Necessities

Three recent stories that seem to be colliding in an ever-increasing lack of coincidence:
1. Massive forest fires in Califorlornia and other western states, including Colorado, with loads of smoke from those fires, wafting ever eastward.
2. The recent discovery of massive "pot" farms, hidden under the tree canopies of national forests, again in the west, and again to include in Colorado.
3. Lots of reports of hungry bears, stumbling into Colorado mountain communities, seeking junk food...
Among the bear "home invasion" reports that have recently surfaced, is one I can't independently verify, but can't bear to pass on *ducking boos and throwd empty drink cups*:
A bear was observed to somersault down a hill onto Main Street; it sat there for a moment, made a "shake-up" sound, then it staggered into a 7-11, ordering an extra large Slurpee, 12 packs of Twinkees, and a bag of malted milk balls. Then it parked itself on the front stoop, completely oblivious to the commotion around it, noshing on the junk food. Once satisfied, the bear belched, made a "peace sign" with it's front right paw, and skipped back toward the smoky woods, humming "One Toke Over The Line"...*
Just sayin'...
* the last might be sorta made up...maybe...

Oh man. I can see the "bear obesity" problem looming ahead. And of course we'll need a federal tax to help curb that problem too.

Skunks, when I lived near Durango one summer we had bears, bears everywheres! One literally did walk into a drug store in Pagosa Springs.

I guess it might be true that pot is a gateway drug...It never dawned on me, but he might have been looking for some harder stuff. Dunno.

Have a terrific day. :)

Sounds entirely plausible to me.

You gonna eat those Cheesie Poofs?

That's funny. There was one of those bear stories where the beat entered a house, got what he wanted out of the cabinets, and left. One stop shopping, and it was free, ha.

If bears can go skateboarding, then wait for some human to send down a ladder so he can climb out of the skateboard park, then yeah, I think it must be true.:-)

Any bear savvy enough to order a Slurpee is welcome at my house any time.

Here I bought the whole thing until the last line ;). Never forgetting, of course, the writer who was telling the tale.

Thanks for you kind words to my post!
