You know how Yogi Bear was always running around Jellystone Park trying to steal pic-a-nic baskets? I just read an article that could possibly explain Yogi and his side kick Boo Booâ€™s constant need for munchies.
Apparently the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) uncovered two marijuana fields near the U.S.-Canada border and discovered 13 bears wandering among the Mary Jane. The fields of about 2,300 wacky-tobacky plants were found near Christina Lake, just a few miles from the border, the Associated Press article states.
When the RCMP arrived in the area, they discovered the bears and â€œcautiously went about making the seizure.â€ The bears, RCMP Cpl. Dan Moskaluk said, were docile and used to humans. It was unclear if the bears were used to guard the pot fields or of the property owners, who were arrested on drug charges, just liked having them around.
Most people I know who are fond of the ganja are rather docile. So Iâ€™m sure these bears werenâ€™t up to creating a ruckus. They were stoned.
I think it is the black bears that are veggie eaters, so they were probably wandering around all the time like, â€œDude, how you doin?â€ instead of being cranky. I know some bears are carnivorous, but it sounds more like these bears were more cannabis.
While reading some of the comments attached to the story, I laughed out loud. Really, not like an LOL, but a real laugh.
Here are a few of my favorites, edited for grammar and a bit of content:
~Â I know one thing for sure – bears never smoked pot when Bush was in office! GET RID OF OBAMA AND GET OUR WILDLIFE OFF DRUGS!!
~ And that, my friend, is the reason the Canadian Constitution denies the right to arm bears.
~Â The ranger isn’t going to like this, Yogi.
~Â Next there will be an article about how lazy the bears have gotten, all they want to do is watch toon network and make nachos.
~Â They were probably illegal immigrants. You know those American bears â€” sex, drugs and rock and roll
~Â Can you imagine if this catches on with bears elsewhere? I can see the headlines nowâ€¦ POT-PUFFING BEAR PHENOMENON SPREADS TO WYOMING – PARK CHANGES NAME TO “YELLOWSTONED”
