A picnic with some of the WYOMING TRAVELERS

Time for a picnic. Was this before or after petting the bear? The bear petter is second from the left. I don't see any hands. Could there be nothing but bloody stumps behind the thermos?

  1. I think the bear may be holding the camera!

    In our NC newspaper just today there was a lengthy article warning people not to feed bears, and in the Wall St. Journal was a similar article about a controversial nature center in Minnesota that actually feeds bears to see what happens.

    1. I like that idea. "Say cheese and then give me some!"

      People are just so stupid. Bears are not our friends. They are gorgeous and wild. People behave badly and stupid. A few years ago I remember driving by some sort of bear "zoo" in South Dakota. I found the idea troubling.
