Remember how last summer was the summer of Bruno the bear? Bruno the black bear was in my neighborhood looking for a mate.
Well, a bear has been seen in the Saint Louis area, two days in a row, (no make that three, now there’s a photo on Facebook putting the bear in Brentwood). So, perhaps it’s two or three bears, and perhaps last year’s bear Bruno was a scout, doing recon for future bear missions. (Maybe he’s done that ever since he was a cub Scout.)
Evidently the bear situation is so bad they are opening up bear season later to select people. Watch out, bears. You can find sanctuary in my backyard.
LATE BREAKING UPDATE: the bear spent too long up a tree and they shot him with a tranquilizer gun and carried him off to a farm upstate. Well, I don’t know where he is.
All I know is I got a lot of delight out of the constant reminders: “Do not take selfies with the bear.”
