“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Grizzly bear rudely ignores rape whistle and eats hiker anyway

Hiker Richard White of San Diego was killed and eaten by a grizzly bear in Denali National Park in Alaska over the weekend. Most hikers recognize the bear danger and stay in groups and carry pistols or rifles for protection. Mr. White carried only a rape whistle.

Grizzly bears are notorious scofflaws and care not about the legality of killing, eating, or raping hikers. Mr. White should have known that bears are mostly hungry and not so much in the mood for sex as he evidently assumed.

Cute, Ed. I enjoyed that.

On a related note, I recently learned that a heart-shot animal typically travels farther before collapsing than one that has been lung-shot.

And big game that has been lung-shot can travel up to 100 yards before collapsing.

Even hikers with rifles (and especially handguns) need to stay well clear of grizzly and polar bears.

A Dog whistle may have worked?
