Bear on the Run

5:15 PM -- Yet another bear finds himself on the wrong side of the law this week, Reuters reports:

    A Macedonian court convicted a bear of theft and damage for stealing honey from a beekeeper who fought off the attacks with thumping "turbo-folk" music.

Warrants for the arrest of Winnie the Pooh and Yogi Bear have been issued. A Mr. C. Robin has provided valuable testimony in the case.

    "I tried to distract the bear with lights and music because I heard bears are afraid of that," Zoran Kiseloski told top-selling daily Dnevnik after the yearlong case of the bear versus the beekeeper ended in the beekeeper's favour.

Clearly this was just a rumor.

    "So I bought a generator, lit up the area and put on songs of (Serbian "turbo-folk" star) Ceca."

    The bear stayed away for a few weeks, but came back when the generator ran out of power and the music fell silent...

    There was no information on the whereabouts of the bear.

That's right, the suspect is still at large.
