Doesn't she know they prefer to eat from Pik-a-nik baskets?

Good luck getting a bear to eat dogfood...

Seen this story making the rounds lately. I think most rational people would agree that she had it coming considering feeding the bears is dangerous for both other people and the bears, and she'd already been warned after one of her bears had to be put down. However, it's been going around the right wing blogosphere because Drudge linked to it with the headline: "81 year old woman arrested for putting out birdseed on her own property."

I immediately regret this decision

Unanswered question--Is she feeding the bear or just feeding birds and squirrels and the bears come around?  Kind of makes a difference.

Let her keep feeding the bears; sooner or later she'll get the Timothy Treadwell treatment - problem solved.

Where did the birdseed thing come from? I thought I had read that she was feeding them dry dog food, leaving out bowls of the stuff on her property with the claims that the bears would starve without her intervention?

Once you feed them, they never leave.

Can we still say "cray-cray" on FARK, or has that been outlawed like the "Ermargerd!" thing?

Lyle Lovett did a great tune titled "Bears."  When he sang about taking a bear out for lunch, though, I don't think he meant it literally, old loonie lady.

Well, she's got the bears on her side.  Maybe she's like the Florida version of Willard.

No, you can't.  Now instead of "Cray-Cray" you have to say "Blue Gene Gene the computing machine".

No, not after she was fined and told to stop it doesn't.

If she had been unintentionally feeding bears, she should have learned her lesson after repeated warnings and going to court and being put on probation instead of just saying she would keep doing it.

also, from the article linked in TFA:  "We are talking about putting out as many as 17 or 18 bowls of dog food,"

Isn't this the third time this lady has made Fark, for this same arrest?

Ok, thanks.  I'll write that down as an update, in my Fark etiquette guide.

/Or how about "Crazy as a Cut Snake," as we say down South?

cantsleep: Isn't this the third time this lady has made Fark, for this same arrest?


Something like that. If I really cared, I'd look it up.

As I recall, the woman has dementia, and hasn't reacted predictably to the warnings.

Standin' her ground like a Real Murrican.

I don't know why this irritates me so much, but if you're going to quote a movie, try to get it right.

It's, "Boy,..."

Holy shiat! This woman posted on Instagram this weekend of her feeding the bears! I randomly came across it when looking at hashtags. Jesus

Give her, the bears and the cops what they want, feed her to the bears.

You get off on the weirdest stuff.

Am I the only one surprised that there are wild bears in Florida? I figured floridians woulda shot them all.
 
2014-02-03 10:50:46 AM  
Damn, she looks like she was raised by bears.
 
2014-02-03 11:06:38 AM  
I once went to a dump in the Upper Peninsula in Michigan just to see the bears that hang out there and some guy with was letting his little kids feed the bears by hand!
Then as the moron finally left we saw Florida plates on his car.

Well, yeah, something had to be done.  Holding her without bond which is more extreme than most murders get is a tad extreme.

It sounds like she was working with these bears. Either as a hostage, or as what we call a "forest bride."

The reason for that is she was violating her probation and she outright stated she would continue to feed the bears.

"Hashtag Jesus" would be a good band name.
