Springville, Utah -- A black bear that bit a sleeping Boy Scout through the wall of his tent was shot after it later returned to the camp, authorities said.
Colton Stewart, 14, woke up early Wednesday to a burning sensation in his upper arm, then realized it was a bear biting his arm through the tent, state wildlife officials said. He pulled away and heard the bear run off through the brush.
"It wasn't biting viciously. They put their mouth on things to see what they taste like," said Anis Aoude, regional wildlife manager for the state Division of Wildlife Resources. "In this case, there just happened to be a kid's arm on the other side of the tent."

Bear taste tests? No thanks.
Too many responses to this line, and I don't want to get the mod on me. (Unless he's cute.)
Looks more like a mosquito bite to me and had to enlarge the pic just to see that.
"Bear bit a boy scout" just doesn't have the same cachet as "moose bit my sister", does it...
Can we do the same to Scout leaders who MOLEST Boy Scouts?
