"smarter than the average bear' ----- if you want to meet some smart bears, I encourage a visit to (or its website) North American Bear Center, Ely, MN.....

Why are people always so surprised when animals are proven to be intelligent? Animals are smart enough to survive in the wild just long as no gun-toting humans are around.

Is this bear a Natural born USA Citizen and can we find a political party with the cojones to run him for president?!?! He'd be far superior to the Kenyan village idiot or the Moroni wannabe...
