Yep. The bear should’ve lived another day to menace the man and his wife, apparently.

Did I mention that when he called them that he shot the bear that they were at the house within 20 minutes?

“But he acted like a jerk.”

In what way?

Having bear at my home I can assure you that any bear at my home acting as did the one described by the persecuted Mass. resident, would be given a chance to leave. Refusal would constitute Bad Bruin Behavior (BBB) Syndrome. BBB is a serious situation, for bruins and humans, and must be cured in the most expeditious manner.

BBB is caused by a diet deficient in heavy metals.

Immediate injection of lead cures BBB Syndrome.

Under dosage is dangerous to both bruin and human populations, and recommended against.

Get a grip on reality, Rommie.

Contrary to what the Animal Panderers Goonion members told, you, having a bird feeder is not “baiting bear”.

Good try, though.

No law can obligate you to be a victim!

Agreed.

Would you like to explain that to the bear?

I have more experience than you with wild bears, and more recent. I have said nothing to imply they’re playthings. You made that up because you’ve nothing to counter the things I actually said. Pathetic.

” having a bird feeder is not “baiting bear”.

Would you like to explain that to the bear?”

Simple - just remember the words of the Guru: “When gunpowder speaks, beasts obey.”

The question you raised can be reduced to the core issue of “Who Rules”, and its corollary, “To what end the rule”.

Long ago, and far away, Dominion was given to Man, not to Beasts. Despite the perverse, and arguably treasonous, efforts of the Massholes in the Taxachussetts Agencies, man has the right to rule over beasts, including bears determined to be the dominant predator on private property.

As we once fought King George over being forced to quarter English troops, so too are the treasonous now attempting to force Americans to submit to having dangerous beasts quartered on private property.

Those with delusions of royal authority are advised to review the results of King George's attempt to quarter the undesirable on American’s private property.

“To what end the rule”

Because some people cherish their God-given right to be a jerk?

Because baiting your property knowing that it will attract bears, and then shooting them because you don't want bears, is a pretty good example of being a jerk.

You persist in repeating your claim that a bird feeder is a “bear baiting device”.

Repetition is not refutation.

Repeated denial of reality, language basics, ad nauseam will put you at risk of being awarded the “CopSucker of the Thread award.

Those game department gun-toters are cops, Ya know? County and state clowns are also part of Da Law in Taxachussetts.

No, I persist in pointing out that the bears know it’s a place to get fed — and that the jerk setting out the food should be able to figure this out. Sorry to keep allowing common sense to intrude.

No. But the SWAT team the Powers That Be will send to arrest you certainly will victimize you.

We need to start returning the favor. The Courts sure as sh*t aren't doing their part to avoid this...

Maybe it was a misprint. We really are supposed to arm bears! After all, it is a "living" document.
