The little western Massachusetts community of North Adams posted a very peculiar advisory on Monday night: Don’t go chasing after bears yourself.
Also, don’t chase them through the woods.
And oh, don’t do it with a useless hatchet.
And seriously, don’t do all this while you’re drunk.
The local police announced on Facebook that they had apprehended a man for doing everything listed above.
Of course, he’s just lucky that he met up with the police before he ever came face to face with an actual bear.
But perhaps the most surprising thing about this story: It didn’t involve someone in Florida.
