Via the AP, Bear turns heads on Lake Tahoe ski slopes:
SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — An unusual sight for winter turned some skiers’ heads on the slopes at Lake Tahoe: a black bear.
What in the world was s/he doing out there?
Nevada Department of Wildlife spokesman Chris Healy says an unusually dry, mild winter in the Sierra has made some bears either not hibernate or partially hibernate.
He tells the Tahoe Daily Tribune that other bears out this time of year are what the department calls “urban interface” bears that don’t hibernate if they have easy access to human food.
Cheryl Millham of Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care agrees bears are currently not in a real deep sleep because of the weather.
That’s all very interesting, but I think we all know the real reason: our beloved video games are coming to life!
It only starts with Ski Free… up next, Angry Birds:
Or, to be more specific for anyone unfamiliar with the above player’s nickname, Angry Doug Baldwin.
(I assume he got to Seattle via the Oregon Trail.)
