Bear Tricks

Bearbanner Funnyman Stephen Colbert uses the recent news of a Lake Tahoe black bear that went for a joyride in and trashed a vacationing family’s Toyota Prius to update his long-running crusade against ursines. (“Apparently a bear also shifts in the woods,” the host of Comedy Central's The Colbert Report muses.) The thought of a bear at the wheel of a hybrid vehicle (with coveted California carpool-lane stickers, no less) gave Colbert plenty of fodder. Watch his take on “sanctimonious enviro-bears” and “grrr-nola munchers” here. (And learn something useful about black bears from the California Department of Fish and Game here.)
