Law Enforcement Quote of the Week


"Our county is so tough on drugs that even the wildlife are getting in on the action."

-
Garfield County, Utah, Sheriff Danny Perkins, on a black bear who repeatedly raided a clandestine marijuana growing operation, forcing its operators to abandon it.

Bravo, Ursus americanus.

Bubsie!!! Hahahaha.

A real bear market alright.

Wow.

New meaning there to 'hungry as a bear'!

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

Bear just wanted to get his buzz on. :)

"Dude, I totally am craving some honey and I don't know why."

Bubs said...

Tenacious, indeed...I tried to work in a pickanick basket joke, but was too tired.

Dr MVM, I was thinking the same thing--that the sheriff was too quick to attribute anti-weed fervor to the bear. Turns out, though, the bear apparently ignored all the weed and just went for their food and canned goods. So...what are we to think? Ursine war on drugs, or munchies?

Dale and Fran, yes.

Smarter than the average bear there Mr Ranger sir!

And thanks for your note.

Hey, Bear: don't bogart that joint.

I just can't bear to make another comment.

Erik Donald France said...

Ah, but I did -- just bearly.

That bear is totally baked.

OMG, that bear needs to come to Nebraska, to my mom's farm.

Yet more fuel to add to one of my plethora of conspiracy theories: black crows as spies, now black bears as (subterranian)undercover DEA agents.

Yay, validation at last!!

Bubs said...

Baroness, you are so welcome! I've spent way more of my time obsessing over alligators than bears, so this was a welcome break for me.

GKL, I just read that! Look out!

Coolcat, are you kidding? That bear knows how to "just say no". No, that look you see is the satisfied look of a post-raid law enforcement professional. All that's missing is the coffee and the donut.

Erik, good job!

Diva, bogart it? See my comment to Coolcat. He didn't bogart it, he confiscated and inventoried it for destruction.

Skylers Dad, yes he is. And you're welcome.

It's nice to see that Sugar Bear is helping the boys in blue...or is he? Should we do a follicle or piss test to find out?

I'm not gonna test him, you test him.

I'm not gonna test him...hey, I know, let's get Bubs, he's not afraid of anything!
