Same thing would happen to me if my wife caught me sniffing another woman’s hair.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

true story -- right after I kissed my bride, she leaned in close to my ear and whispered - "Rememember, I grew up using a machete"

It seems like an unusual way to handle it. I think in the U.S. if a bear gets too comfortable around humans and becomes a threat, they either relocate them or put them down.

Why go to the trouble of castrating a male--which now can't reproduce but could still be a potential threat?

Yes, a very odd and questionable decision.

My grandfather was raising pigs and I remember the vet coming to castrate the pig, and IIRC he got paid but also took the testicles with him. I asked what does he do with those, my grandfather told me the vet would grill them, supposedly they were delicious. Maybe this is why they castrated this bear? someone had a nice steak that evening.

Honestly, sounds like something that would have happened to an African-American man not long enough ago, then he would have been murdered!

Castration makes a farm animal less aggressive, and removes his too friendly genes from the pool.

You should save your BS agenda for the Other Side.

all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

Awww, the poor bear. It's not as if this bear was doing something against its nature ... bears are naturally curious animals, and the fact that he didn't actually attack her (with her taking selfies, no less!) is saying something too.

I'm guessing they castrated because they thought it might reduce or prevent the bear's aggression... but doesn't it make more sense to leave the bears be? And make sure that people know to avoid them and not be taking selfies??
