NOT SMARTER THAN THE AVERAGE BEAR
This black bear in
picked the wrong place to hibernate.
The animal camped out under the porch of a home where four
children live — and near where 20 kids wait for the school bus.
Residents of Chestnuthill Township had suspected for days that a
bear was in their midst after they saw that their trash cans had
been tampered with. But it wasn't until two children happened upon
the bear on Sunday that its exact whereabouts became clear.
Pedro Sainvil owns the home where the 600- to 700-pound male bear
seems to have settled in.
On Sunday, Sainvil sent two of his children, ages 8 and 9, outside
to play in the snow. "After 15 or 20
minutes, they came back screaming, 'Dad, Dad! There's a bear under
the house!'" Sainvil said.
The bear will be removed by state wildlife officers, authorities
"It's very scary,"
said Rose Marie Louis-Jacques, Sainvil's
mother. "I'm just praying that he'll
take off. It's like a bomb under the house."
