Da Bears!

Yes, it's that time of year again. Time for the bears of the world to start eating anything they can get their paws on to get their bellies full for their long winter naps.

WMUR is reporting several bear spotting in Plaistow, New Hampshire over the weekend.

Apparently, bears like birdseed.


Someone who doesn't need to be told that is longtime mB/NLB reader and friend, Angus Lincoln, who lives up in Jackson. We hooked up for dinner and drinks a few days back and he showed us to what lengths a bear will go, trying to get at the big bag of birdseed in your trunk, should you find yourself too lazy to bring it inside when you get it home.

Bear 0, Birdseed 1

And his insurance company covered the damage.

Also, from the WMUR story:

Animal control officials said the last time the bear was spotted, it was headed across the border to Haverhill, Mass.

Well, you know what they say about predators preferring to operate in gun-free zones. I know if I was a bear, I'd much rather hang out in liberal la-la land than anywhere up here.
