Carnivores.....

.... according to a txt message that I just received from The Missus, police in the small town where she works have broadcasted for all downtown Athenians to stay indoors for the next few hours......... evidently there is a 250lb black bear roaming the abandoned evening streets.......

.... hey, Welcome to Tennessee.........

.... I sent a message back asking her if she'd like me to put the top down on Blanche, load up my bear rifle, and tool through town a few times, but she said that probably wasn't a good idea.........

..... never a dull moment around these parts, that's for sure....

Bullshit So Far

Only 250 lbs? Jus' a little ol' baby bear.

well, she really said no because she was afraid you'd accidentally get shot by one of the scads of other Athenians roaming town with a bear gun.

Bears in your dumpsters were a regular occurance in NM. They also eat your hummingbird feeders. I bet the biggest threat in TN is not the bears, but the folks with guns driving up and down the street looking for them. Yep, better stay indoors.

Sort of reminds me of the story you told of rat killin' in Adak!!! I say load up the car with a bunch of cammie clad, drunk, armed jarheads and see what hijinx ensue!!!

Ha! I imagine your saintly wife was just worried the bear might scratch Blanche when it went down...

We get the occasional Ursine Visitor in our northern Atlanta 'burbs, too. It's an unusual event, though, since the bears appear to understand the risks of being felled by a pissed-off soccer mom in an SUV.
