The bear stories that have emerged from Tahoe since the fall have defied logic.
Until last week, that is.
At Sierra Nevada College in Incline Village, on the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe, some students unaccustomed to bears have made it a game on campus to "spank" the animals with a pat on the butt, another game to "pet" one. One student resorted to feeding a bear an apple after deciding it was a bad idea to spank him, according to a November report in the student newspaper.
In one case, a bear social- ized to humans opened the window of a dorm room, climbed in and rummaged through the student's mini-fridge.
Another student, a sophomore who lives in a house near the campus, said a bear broke into her home four times, ate everything and trashed the sofa.
In October alone near Incline, Nevada wildlife officials caught 14 bears, transported them into national forest lands and released them. Other bears branded as dangerous have been shot and killed.

Global varming must have more of an effect at higher altitude.

~~~please don’t spank the bears~~~
That seems like good advice at any location.
Please refrain from monkey jokes.
How about a game called “steal the cub from the mama bear”?
“Rummaged through the student’s mini-fridge.
A bear broke into her home four times, ate everything and trashed the sofa”.
Sounds like just ordinary frat stunts to me...
That said, it is a shame idiots like these acclimate bears to humans, which gets the bears killed-bears don’t have any sense, but humans are supposed to...
Dude, that’s wrong... but funny.
Wait til she has teenage boys of her own.

I dunno what’s new about this story. The Chicago Bears have been getting spanked for the past several years.
And if a Democrat, it is still permissible to spank the monkey — in public if within 100 miles of San Franfreakshow.
The Packers spank the Bears all the time.
At least, that's the excuse she gave her parents.

Back in our time, we just shot them, made stew, and had a floor rug...
I remember the bears getting into the dumpsters at Yosemite, so the maintenance staff built a fence with a really serious gate, but the bears tore it open. So the next night someone shut the gates and parked a car up against it so it couldn’t be pulled open. I think it was a VW ...the bears tore the sucker apart and actually moved it about five feet so they could open the gate.
