    Got bears roaming our neighborhood up here in maine. Nobody gives a shit. We still play in the woods.

    MA calls out gov agencies and helocopters.

    You are comparing the backwoods of Maine to an urban sprawl town like Arlington ?

    Maine can't even imagine what is going on down here! We are handling unreal situations now! We have Russian collusion, angry white people, fake Indians, and, unfortunately, fake bears. We can't depend on our own media so we are getting the real news from that thing called internet.

    Why not? The only difference is that in Arlington there are 2 dentists on every street. Maine has implemented "pull it out" affordable dental plan and dentists are no longer needed in that state!

    Yup. But, moonbats gotta moonbat. Next they will say remove all teddy bears from gift stores because it is too traumatizing.

    Reminds me of that time when a moose wandered into Natick.

    Police shooting of moose prompts calls of protest

    Also reminds me of the time my folks had a rabid animal, I think a raccoon. They lived in Natick. Cop shows up. My dad knows him. Takes him to the back yard. Shows him this raccoon acting crazy. Cop hands my father his gun and says ‘you shoot it’. But that was before the crazy times we live in now.

    LOL, Arlington. Leafy, Liberal, and Loaded sector?

    [​IMG]

    Come on out to the 'There be Dragons' sector of Mass and nobody GAF about bears. We had a massive one on the deck, sniffing through the screen door. Shoo'd it away like squirrel.

    I couldn’t understand a word of it but the message I got out of it is that if it’s not wearing a bikini it’s trying to kill you.

    There’s a Coyote that has taken over Savin Hill as his territory. Every few days someone finds a mound of fur. They seem to be using train rights-of-way as rapid transit....

    The EPA has been called in to protect the environment from sweating scared people from adding to the Major Global Warming Catastrophe we are all facing!

    Maybe they could get those turkeys from Cambridge to head over and drive the bear out. The only downside then would be that you'd have two towns stuck living under the turkeys' reign of terror.

    This guy's been a pretty regular visitor to my backyard. Shows up around 6am a couple times/week.
    We've had to get better about keeping the trash cans in the garage and the garage closed.

    I saw a weasel drag a rabbit carcass past my patio yesterday.

    I can't remember - was I supposed to call the animal control officer or SWAT for that?

    A tag? I think that means legal. In which case, give it maximum punishment.

    This one is the second one visiting my camp and destroying my bird feeders.

    I believe in the right to bear arms, but just the arms. I don't want the whole bear

    They need to bring in the (ex-)teacher from Southbridge. He's got the right caliber ammo, and presumably pistol(s), for bear.
