Over the past few months, there has been an alarming increase in the number of bears found in public and private areas. Homes, college campuses, and playgrounds have all played host to bears around the country and many are wondering why.
According to some sources, the bears have started their own “Occupy” movement around the country to protest the national parks asking patrons not to feed them. To show their displeasure with these draconian measures, bears have shown up on public and private property and have climbed into trees as a protest of sorts. Unfortunately, the bears underestimated the power of man’s tranquilizer gun and many have been shot out of the trees and released back into the wild.
Due to the overwhelming failure of the protest to garner any interest in the bears’ plight, it is certain to be lost in the annals of history. As the bears return to their honey pots, their movement is more or less symbolized by the countless images of tranquilized bears falling unconciously out of a tree.
