Justice Brought To Bear

Sorry, Honey, You’re Guilty

Is this a case of bear necessities? A Macedonian bear with Winnie the Pooh-type tastes has been found guilty of stealing honey. A court convicted the bear of theft and damage for stealing honey from a beekeeper who fought off the attacks with thumping "turbo-folk'' music. The Bitola city court found the bear guilty and ordered the state to pay the $3500 damage it caused to the beehives.

FOOTNOTE: Bad attack of hives.

A very interesting scenario indeed. At least the bear didn't have to pay the fine!

Are you sure they got the right bear? Where was Bob T Bear whilst all this was going down?

Not that I want to cast any aspertions or anything..

If you're going to find a bear guilty, I think you should try to collect the fine from the bear.

Glad it's the state and not Christopher Robin having to pay for the damage!
Did they cite the hive owner for noise pollution though?

Poor bear! And I assume it also had to recover from the bee stings which evidently weren’t as painful as the "turbo-folk'' music.

Obviously a product of poor upbringing. I blame the bearants.

What IS the world coming to when you put a bear on trial for stealing honey but you let child molesters teach school? I'd rather be taught by the bear.
