🐻 “Kiddos vs Grizzly: A Bear-y Close Encounter in PA πŸš‘”

Two pint-sized warriors, aged five and one, had an unexpected run-in with a bear 🐻 in their driveway in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. Although the encounter resulted in bites and scratches, the kids came out okay and were later released from the hospital. But it’s left us wondering, what led to this bear-y close encounter? πŸ€”

In the quiet confines of Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, two younglings, merely a five-year-old and a one-year-old, found themselves in a driveway drama straight out of a movie. Little did they know, they were about to embark on a real-life “The Revenant,” featuring a bear instead of Leo. (No Oscars were won in the making of this incident. πŸ˜…)

They weren’t hunting for honey like Winnie the Pooh, but they nonetheless had a surprise guest in the form of a bear, resulting in non-life threatening injuries. The medical staff at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital, presumably shaking their heads at such an unusual patient history, treated the brave duo for bites and scratches and sent them home.

Now, the Pennsylvania Game Commission is left with the task of investigating this unusual episode. Did the bear misinterpret a play invite? Or was there a territorial dispute over the driveway? In the midst of fewer details, the agency is left to set traps, presumably baited with less kids and more honey, in a bid to find the bear in question.

And should they catch the furry assailant, some serious CSI-style action will follow. DNA testing is to be deployed to confirm if the captured bear is indeed the same chap that had the driveway disagreement with the children. πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

But before we launch a ‘Save the Kids, Beware of Bears’ campaign, the Game Commission reassures us that bears in Pennsylvania usually keep their paws to themselves, avoiding contact with people, and rarely attack. So, what went wrong this time? 🧐

The story of these two tots and their driveway grizzly encounter makes us question – how safe are our own backyards? Should we start checking for bears under our beds, next?
