Finding On Claw Marks To Be In Next Issue

This article first appeared in issue 13, and was written by Ed Waggener.

Loren Bennett has found a tree on Moss Creek, below Bennett Ridge in western Adair County, with claw marks about head high. Mr. Bennett believes the marks are those of a bear. Bear Board Dean Gary Coomer is investigating and will deliver a finding in a future installment of these Bear Board Chronicles.

Please bear with us on the pace of our investigations. At present, we are inundated with reports, which, on the surface at least, are of unquestionable validity.

It is our intention not to be stampeded into a rush to judgment, nor to offer truncated versions of important scientific study.
