Another Bear With Transport Aspirations
Remember the German bear who tried to make good his escape from the zoo by stealing a bike ? Well it seems that they’re all at it.
This time, it was a bear making off with a car - allegedly attracted by the peanut butter sandwich left on the seat by the car’s owner, 17 year-old Ben Story from Colorado. Not surprisingly, seeing as its doubtful that the bear had ever had any driving lessons, and was almost certainly driving while uninsured, he was just the sort of driver who’d crash the car and then leave the scene. Which is precisely what happened - but not before also leaving a sample of what bears usually do in the woods on the driver’s seat.
Seems to me like a lot more crimes could be cleared up if the police started using this sort of information to influence their stop-and-search tactics. I mean, racial profiling has a bit of a bad name, but arresting all bears could have a significant impact on clear-up rates for auto- and bicycle theft. Just you remember that next time you see the Met harassing a so-called innocent bear on the street .
