he followed the bear through his neighborhood

Sometimes you follow the bear, and sometimes the bear follows you. [or something like that]

Time for a bear season. Florida black bear have been attacking people, a sure sign they don’t fear man.

The twits in the FloriDUH Game Commission do not realize they can not create a safe bear, panther, python, ad nauseam. This is Florida, not the Garden of Eden, and large bodied predators will not lie down in peace with people.

PS Rumor has it that the Garden of Eden, and its ‘peaceful predators’ was created by more than a mere bureaucrat.

Interesting wild life, but another headline on the source page caught the eye...40 graves found under a golf course. Did the o frequent this course and will this figure be added to those prior?

"Time for a bear season. Florida black bear have been attacking people, a sure sign they don’t fear man."

That's for sure. I had one rampage through my mom's back yard and tear down the fence in three places. Going in, going out, going in and out again. Trashed a five foot chain link fence. Everybody in the neighborhood has to secure trash cans and they still wander through the area on a regular basis. The population needs thinned.
