  1. Either that was Yogi and he was looking for a pic-a-nic backet or he was a local tough looking for spare change so he can go down and buy a pack of smokes…

    guess we are sure it is not someone in a "suit"…grin?

    reminds me of the case I read about in British Columbia …

    Some guy had trained bears to guard his outdoor grow op…Seemed like he must've been doing it for many many yrs. When discovered seemed to be many generations of bears there. All quite amiable to him. He fed them constantly, good variety, and treats too…

    as Yogi would say

    "smarter than the average bear"..

    If I remember correctly the BC bears guarding the grow op had all ended up dead – too tame to relocate.

    Anonymous, no idea how accurate this report is, but I felt rather sad for those bears after reading your comment, so went hunting..

    Come to think of it….maybe the fellow in the video is one of those "grow op" bears….Might be possible, would explain his comfort with vehicles, humans, etc…
