I Can Name That Tune In Three Notes!

...it's called the melodious tones of a .308 Winchester...

School bus stop relocated due to bear
CONWAY, N.H. — A school bus stop in Conway has been temporarily relocated due to the appearance of a 300-pound black bear.

Conway police told WMWV radio that the bear was first spotted Tuesday morning sitting about 60 feet up a pine tree.
Now, I am of course joking - if there's a way to safely relocate the bear without harming it, I would much rather see that happen. But were that my kid's bus stop, I'd be waiting with something in a substantial caliber at the ready just to be on the safe side. An omnivorous wild animal that close to humans makes me nervous...

I'd rather have a Yogi rug than an injured kid any day of the week...

That is all.

Unlike a 300 pound bear to be that far up a tree, too.

A 300 pound black bear doesn't have much to fear from anything but another, bigger, black bear.

I suspect a 150 pound bear!

They dropped him into a net with a tranquilizer dart from almost 100ft up the tree yesterday. Moving him to an even more rural part of the state. I actually am VERY familiar with the area, there is a wooded area just to the north of where they darted him that is known to have a bear den. I've probably seen this very bear once or twice.

Leave the bear AND bus stop where they are. It'll make sure the damn kids are awake and alert for the first class.

Don't let school officials know- they'll want to raise the schools apparent standing by causing the kids to run faster in physical education class (y'see, the slower ones will have been eaten at the bus stop). I gotta remember, type first, then make gin-and-tonic.

And, free range bear is healthier than factory produced pork, so the school division could get in line with the First Klingon's push for healthier school food.
