Was a Snowboarder Chased by a Bear?

A Guy Driving With a Bear Avoids a Ticket . . . Because It Was Wearing a Seatbelt

A Guy Driving With a Bear Avoids a Ticket . . . Because It Was Wearing a Seatbelt

A guy in Yekaterinburg, Russia was driving last week with a small BEAR in his backseat. People even took photos of it with its head hanging out of the window.

Yekaterinburg is above Kazakhstan, which is kind of appropriate. Because if you remember, in the movie “Borat”, he drove around with a bear in his ice cream truck.

Anyway, the cops pulled the guy over, but he avoided a ticket . . . because he was in accordance with RUSSIAN BEAR LAW.

It turns out that in Russia, you can drive with a bear in the car as long as it wears a seat belt. And this bear was, in fact, wearing his.

Also, apparently it’s common enough in Russia for people to put BEARS in their cars, that they have nuanced laws regulating it?

It’s not clear where the guy got the bear from or where he was going with it.

Pic shows: bear riding in the back passenger seat of a car. Motorists had to do a double take when they saw a bear riding in the back passenger seat of a car. The brown bear even stuck it’s head out of the rear window of the Volga car to catch a treat offered by a passenger. The strange incident happened in the city of Yekateriburg in Central Russia's Sverdlovsk Oblast and was recorded on video by the driver who was following behind. The footage shows the bear’s head poking out of the window and then a man’s hand offering him a treat to keep the bear amused and happy. At the time of the incident the Filatov circus from Moscow, famous for its performances with bears, was on tour in Yekaterinburg. But the head of the circus Julia Filatova said the bear was nothing to do with them. She said the bear in the car was a young animal and that is why it was put in a car. "Our bears are much bigger. Normally little bears are kind and friendly. If it was more than a year old it wouldn’t fit in such a car." The Yekaterinburg Zoo also denied any knowledge about the animal and it is not illegal to transport bears in that way – as long as they wear a seatbelt apparently according to the laws of the Russian Federation.

A Bear Breaks Into a Bakery and Eats All The Pies . . . Except For One Flavor

A Bear Breaks Into a Bakery and Eats All The Pies . . . Except For One Flavor

Bear eats pies

Who ate all the pies (save one)?

This might be a definitive answer to the question ‘What’s the worst type of pie?’

A bear broke into a bakery in Pinewood Springs, Colorado on Monday night. He smashed a window, crawled in, and went straight for their pies . . . which he just DEVOURED.

Except for one flavor. The bear ate 24 cherry pies, 14 apple pies, a few bags of cocoa and sugar . . . but wouldn’t touch the STRAWBERRY RHUBARB pies.

Because the bear knows what so many of us know: Strawberry rhubarb pie is terrible.

The woman who owns the place says, quote, “Maybe he wasn’t feeling a tart pie, I guess.”

A Couple Bought a Beanie Baby For $15 at a Garage Sale . . . Turns Out It Could Be Worth $93,000

A Couple Bought a Beanie Baby For $15 at a Garage Sale . . . Turns Out It Could Be Worth $93,000

Maybe you’re one of those people who stocked up on Beanie Babies in the ’90s because you thought they’d be worth a fortune one day. But after two decades of taking up space, you’re ready to sell ’em all for pennies.

Well . . . be careful. There’s one family in Cornwall, England that actually won the Beanie Baby lottery, and didn’t realize it.

22-year-old Ryan Flanaghan and his 20-year-old girlfriend Leah Rogers went to a garage sale earlier this month and bought a purple Beanie Baby for about $15.

Turns out the people selling it had no idea it was a limited edition Princess Diana memorial bear. There were only 100 made, and it could be worth up to $93,000.

Leah and Ryan put it up on eBay with a starting bid of $37,500 . . . and a “Buy It Now” price of $60,000. Their auction ends tomorrow . . . and so far, they haven’t gotten any bids.
