Fresh Air Leads To Dead Bear

By Dave Hurteau

My wife is neurotic about fresh air, a trait she inherited from her mother. We—that is, every member of the family--must have fresh air streaming into our bedrooms, even if it’s arctic fresh air that wakes the kids in the middle of the night because they are freezing their little asses off.

I’ll be forwarding her this link, from the Victoria Advocate:
Everett Skinner and his family have started keeping their windows closed at night after a bear broke into their southwest Oregon home and he fatally shot it. . . .

Family members have done what they can to clean up the den, but Skinner says they're probably going to have to replace the carpet because of the "rather bloody mess."

And they won't be sleeping with the windows open anymore.

"That's the last fresh air we're going to get at night," Skinner said.

He could have the bear skin made into a rug and just cover up the blood.

weve, genius.

Someone should start seminars on bear safety, because going by this and other recent news, people don't know how to deal with bears at any level.

Well there is an excuse to stop that fresh air from coming in. It is almost sad though because one can not even leave a window open anymore, because most areas that would mean a burglary.

I'm surprised someone didn't suggest he should have used his bear spray. I told an Alaskan friend that more and more people are subscribing to the "bear spray" be kind to bear craz, and he just laughed, thought people down here probably haven't really seen a bear up close.
