Bear Story of the Day #2- Bear Sighted in Albany Not Half As Disturbing As The One at the History Museum Pub Crawl
Imagine my surprise to be writing my second bear story of the day. Earlier, I showed you the video of the Canadian hunter getting a close-up visit from a young bear while hanging out in his hunting stand.
But lo and behold, I open my email this afternoon, and receive an interestingly titled robo-mail from Stearns County. At first glance I was tickled to discover I had yet another opportunity to bring you a bear story, but then as the title of the email connected, I realized that there just might be more than your run-of-the-mill “I saw a bear in my yard!!!” story.
The email evoked a chuckle and a shake of my head, as I realized the alarming title was merely a poor use of punctuation and sentence structure. It read;
“Great Photos of Black Bear Sighting in Albany and History Museum Pub Crawl”
Now a bear sighting in Albany is rare enough, but a bear running amok at the History Museum Pub Crawl is certainly worth checking into…
It was probably a brown bear, as they are the more gregarious sub-species. I would imagine he turned quite a few heads sauntering into The Veranda and ordering a Woodchuck Hard Cider, or possibly, if he’s lucky they might have a bottle of mead on hand.
But don’t worry, we’ve nothing to fear, I’ve heard that bears are mostly fun drunks. With the exception of Winnie The Pooh, who is just a major asshole when he gets a jag on.
