Miz Victoria: Bear in the neighborhood with my girls

A BLUE RIBBON BEAR BOARD REPORT: The Steve, Sue Sarah Wilson bear sighting Sunday, June 10, 2012, has caused quite a stir, even though any number of people now say they've seen a bear, or a bear with a cub in the area in the past year. The reasons why they haven't reported it are many - didn't want to put up with ridicule from idjits, just didn't think of reporting the event, - or they didn't want the bear(s) hunted or bothered, as was the case of a sighting on Orban Branham Road, plum nelly in Bear Paradise Cumberland County. Greater Bliss is not the epicenter of Bear sightings, but some of the gentry are more than a little upcited: Including cattle baron Miz Victoria, who sent this report first, tinged with just a little anxiety as the humankind/bear territory accord is being hammered out yet again.

Miz Victoria Pike writes:
Ed, I hear there is a bear in the neighborhood near my girls - cows for those of you out of the loop. Now, we have had a pot bellied pig, a bob cat, and now a bear. What is the neighborhood coming to? Along with the the normal varmints, we deal with such as possum, skunk, red fox and raccoon, on a daily basis, we could open a zoo out here next to Wally World.

May have to get Mr. Bud Mullins after that bear, if we can get him out of the sinkhole this hot muggy weather we are having today. Hope we can get pictures of this bear next time. I hear he was over on Woody's side. I will check in with him later to see what he knows on this bear story. Vicky --Miz Victoria Pike
