bear insomnia, drunken elk!

the wildlife are going, um, wild!

bears in russia have been unable to hibernate because of warm temperatures! global warming has created roving bands of tired and cranky bears! oh no!

MOSCOW, Nov 15 (Reuters Life!) - Insomniac bears are roaming the forests of southwestern Siberia scaring local people as the weather stays too warm for the animals to fall into their usual winter slumber.

don't you love this bear cub? i think he looks like me.

and in sweden the elk are mean drunks!

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - A drunken elk is terrorizing children at a school in southern Sweden.

"That could be the problem. We could be dealing with a boozy elk," Jan Caiman, a police officer in Molndal, told the national news agency TT.

The elk was probably eating fermented apples in a garden and had become inebriated, Caiman said

His eyes look a bit crazed, as if he too, is sleep deprived.

The bear looks like Great Oppressor J did a couple of days ago (as Another Shade of Grey put it, crazed and sleep deprived...). Poor bears. You know the feeling you get when you really need to go to sleep but some jerk refuses to turn off the light? Now multiply that by 1000 and that's how pissed off those bears are getting. As for the elk, what about the children? Don't the elk know that alcohol hurts the ones we love the most? And can elk have interventions?

poor bears. i know how grumpy I get when i don't get my 23 hours of sleep a day.

but i like the rampaging drunk elk. those swedish kids have a cushy life anyway with their subsidized education, free health care, and social safety net. they need a little unpredictability in their lives. so i'll drink to the elk! (burp)

Global warming. We animals have to suffer because of you-mans and their obsession with hairspray.
