Bear kills militants
BBC ^ | 12:28 GMT, Tuesday, 3 November 2009 | Altaf Hussain

Posted on 11/04/2009 12:06:15 PM PST by gandalftb

A bear killed two militants after discovering them in its den in Indian-administered Kashmir, police say.

Two other militants escaped, one of them badly wounded, after the attack in Kulgam district, south of Srinagar.

The militants had assault rifles but were taken by surprise - police found the remains of pudding they had made to eat when the bear attacked.

The militants had made their hideout in a cave which was actually the bear's den, said police officer Farooq Ahmed.

The dead have been identified as Mohammad Amin alias Qaiser, and Bashir Ahmed alias Saifullah. News of the attack emerged when their injured comrade went to a nearby village for treatment.

Hmmm..... Wonder what kind of pudding.... Or was it really porridge? And the leader of the militants was really named Abu Goldilocks?

The bears estimate it will take at least two weeks to get all of the stink out of their cave.

Yeah! Go bear!

Hey, I have a brain storm - why not parachute drop grizzly bears into northern Pakistan? The bears would go looking for caves for winter hibernation and drive all the militants out into the open.

Naw! It makes too much sense and might work.

Three years ago, residents of Mandora village near the southern town of Tral, beat a black bear to death which had strayed into the village.

Payback is a bear or something .

I had to click just to see which militants were killed by bears. I was thinking militant environmentalists, feminists, anti-capitalists, anarchists, etc. So many militants, so much bear food.

From my favorite Far Side cartoon:

“Heh, heh, Boo-Boo, let’s go into this cave and get us some pudding,” says Yogi. “But Yogi, we need to eat our dinner first,” replies Boo-Boo. “No problem!”, says Yogi.... and so Yogi and Boo-Boo have a balanced meal.

Maybe the terrorists in the mountains will get nailed by a snow leopard. Or a viper or cobra. There's all kinds of stuff in Pakistan.

I'm not saying the bear was a Mossad agent, but the last thing the terrorists heard was "Barukh ata Adonai Eloheinu Melekh ha‑olam, she‑hakol nih'ye bidvaro."

If the halachal authorities can make an exception for fried locusts, they can make an exception for raw terrorists.
