    The really sad part is, they will more than likely euthanize the bear for...being a bear.

    i see your point but...

    i'm pretty sure it's actually the killing a human part that requires the bears death...not the bear part.

    Yeah, but the bear was just being a bear. Bears kill.

    Sometimes people working with animals forget that they're wild animals and their job is to kill stuff.

    I'm not sure they forget it, they just choose that lifestyle regardless.

    I wonder if someone will eat the bear once it's killed? And I would absolutely love a bearskin....

    Well I assumed as much.

    But I also assumed it would be deemed either offensive or funny, with about a 50/50 split.

    I got it, too. But I was sidetracked by the thought of a bear skin going to waste when I want one so badly.

    But don't want to pay a fortune for it.
