When a bear bites you in the butt

Straight from my own zip code:

Bear bites Florida woman in rear end as she walks her dog

"Ouch! A woman walking her dog near an apartment complex in Longwood, Fla., early Friday morning was bitten in the rear end by a bear."

"The woman was taken to Florida Hospital-Altamonte in Altamonte Springs with four puncture wounds, the paper reported."

Hope the bears alright, bears usually avoid humans, rabies maybe?

If I was a bear and I was going to bite a woman that's exactly the spot I would go for.

I guess the bear didn't like the way she tasted.

A resident of the complex, Arlene Friedlander, 79, told the paper that she often sees bears near the apartments. "I'm not afraid of them," she said.
If you don't like bear bits in the butt, this might be a reason to be afraid now.

....bear behind... <snicker>

Scary really. There are a few areas I ride alone that are mountain lion country. As I'm creeping along huffing and puffing I occasionally think "gee I must look like a wounded animal ripe for the picking..."

You really can't blame the bear.

That woman's rear end looks like two pigs fighting over a box of Milk Duds.

Does she look like John Candy? might have been the bear from The Great Outdoors.

Another true to life Rubenstory(TM) from the old deep south.

Local deputy Cletus Jones has arrested the ample size woman for being out in public "bear ass".
