Today’s post comes from Bart, the bear who found a smart phone in the woods.
H’lo, Bart here.
Got very excited about this video where a family of bears (my people!) confuses a bunch of tourists (your people!) on a bridge at Yellowstone National Park in Montana.
This is a great moment for bears everywhere, because it can mark the beginning of a change in the way people think about us!
Some decided the bears were chasing the people.
Others saw the bears as being frightened and cornered.
But I think these bears are starting a revolution, taking it to the next level in bear-human interactions. They’re stepping it up so we can become more like the animals I really admire – Border Collies!
Border Collies rock because they can get those sheep to do just what they want them to do just by running circles around them, which believe it or not, we bears are fast enough to do.
And you can tell from the Yellowstone video that all those people with the cameras are feeling sheepish. They know they’re not where they’re supposed to be.
They WANT to be in the corral. They DESERVE to be in the corral.
Plus, Border Collies are dignified, lovable, respected, and recognized by everyone as being super-smart. That’s my dream for bears – that we can have that kind of status.
And at least two meals a day, which sheepdogs also get as part of the deal!
Let the revolution begin!
Your trusted, capable friend,
I think Bart is hallucinating, or the wild berries have both ripened and fermented at the same moment. The Yellowstone bears are frightened and Bart is no sheepdog. But we all can dream!
What animal do you most admire?
