Whisky Tango Foxtrot.

Am I reading this right?

The taste of honey was just too tempting for a bear in Macedonia, which repeatedly raided a beekeeper's hives.

Now it has a criminal record after a court found it guilty of theft and criminal damage.


A bear with a criminal record? Like he cares!

The bear, meanwhile, remains at large - somewhere in Macedonia.

When I first saw the headline I thought the bear would be slapped with a custodial sentence......

Yes you read right. I saw that news story somewhere else. Of course, here in the United States or UK that would not have been a crime. As far as I know, an animal that is not conscious of the law cannot form the intent to commit a criminal act. Therefore no crime has been committed. IIRC, the local government was made to pay the damages as the bear was a protected species and there was obviously no way that the bear could be expected to pay the damages.

Don't expect to see me around that much (if at all) -- the contact link should still work, though.
