The Now: Are we on the brink of a bearpocalypse?
THE NOW video -- Forget zombies, has anyone else noticed the alarmingly high number of bears in the news lately? This latest black bear gets bragging rights on two titles, ‘Cape Cod Bear’ and ‘Brookline Bear’, after being captured and set free twice. He didn’t get a photo moment like that other Colorado bear from awhile back, but he IS still alive—a win for him. Then there were the two giant bears fighting on a front lawn in Florida. Don’t those folks already have enough to worry about with gators and hurricanes? The Tahoe garage bear cub has been making the Internet rounds because his mom helping to rescue him, as well as his climb down a ladder to finally get free was pretty impressive. This list wouldn’t be complete without a shout out to that texting guy from earlier this spring that almost ran smack into a rather large bear roaming the sidewalk outside of his apartment complex in California. Bears—they’re everywhere, but the question is, what are they trying to tell us?
