Kermode Bear Spotted in the UP
« on: September 21, 2022, 07:37:52 PM »
These are white brown bears that are only found in British Columbia.  A.K.A. the "Spirit Bear".  This is the first time in 20 yrs one has been in the USA, I believe there are fewer than 200 in BC.  I hope this bear is alright and protected by authorities in Michigan.

There are no laws to protect this bear in Michigan.  Something has to be done.  I wonder how he/she ended up there?

Western UP.   Probably came through Minnesota and Wisconsin

By himself/herself on a trek?  This is crazy unusual Tower.  He/She needs to be relocated to the Great Bear Rainforest ASAP.

Hey. We don't make fun of Bears here, unless they play football.

Officials want to capture the bear before poachers do.

If actual Bears could be taught how to play football they would never lose.

Or maybe he is just fine where he is.

What if they were black bears and they were playing a team of silverback gorillas who had been taught to play football?

A caravan of spirit bears is descending upon the northern border and no one is doing anything!  Where the hell is Tucker?

That's a really tough one.  If they were Polar Bears or Kodiak's they would have an enormous size advantage.  Plus Polar Bears can lift like 1000 lbs.  That said Silverbacks probably could understand the game far more quickly.  Either way I'd take my chances if I replaced NFL lineman on both sides with either of these animals.  Keep in mind Polar Bears can be 11 feet tall and weigh 1800 lbs.  They would maul 300+ NFL players like the average human could a toddler.  :)

Fair enough.  That's an extremely difficult question. Let me think about this for a while.....the Silverback could have the edge.

They play their own sports and are not stupid. My guess is you have never observed Orangutans and Gorillas.
