Summit Up 9-27-12: All the latest when it comes to bears

Summit Up
Special to the Daily

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that’s a little concerned about bear run-ins. Paul and Claudia Aex hold the Summit Daily at Katmai National Park and Preserve in Alaska with a bear in the background! Run!!

Though from the looks of this photo, I’m sure the lovely couple had no problems slowly backing away from the grizzly due to the bear’s lethargic persona. Much like Bart the Bear that ran in Summit Up a couple of days ago. Turns out, there’s been a major break in the Breck bear break-in case!

After the case was written about in the Sunday edition of the good ol’ SDN, millions of Summit Up readers sent in tips to Ol’ Smokey the Bear who was in pursuit of the vagrant Bart.

He was found after millions of tips about his frequent attendance at the Gold Pan surfaced. Smokey barged into the bar, old-west style, and found ol’ Bart laughing over not one, but two very large beers.

If you don’t know, bears get caught when they’re exposed to alcohol. Whether they’re bad village bears like Bart or nice ones simply wandering around, wildlife managers and Smokey the Bear are quick to detain them!

With Ron Burgundy as an influential role model, some famous last words from Tyler over at The Alpine Market in Frisco, “stay classy Summit County.” We out.
