Unbearably Funny

My granny sent me this story about a bear who wandered into a medical clinic in New Mexico. My granny's comment: Poor Bear. I hope he had insurance!

No kidding--I can only imagine the itemized bill he will receive for tranquilization, transportation, and waste disposal. Can't a bear just get his viagra prescription in peace??

A young black bear ambled through a medical clinic's automatic door early Friday and into a gastroenterology lab, the perfect place for a tranquilizer.

"I think the person in the waiting room was pretty surprised," said Todd Sandman, director of public relations for Presbyterian Health Care Services, which runs the lab in Rio Rancho, on the outskirts of Albuquerque.

Well with our healthcare system here in the US, I'm sure he'll be receiving a bill for a ridiculous amount any day, now!

He looks cute, though...maybe they can give him a discount for that?

I suppose he should have made an appointment first instead of turning up like that. J x

He should have come to Canada. The politicos haven't quite disseminated public health care yet. Of course, all our doctors are in the US. He would have waited hours for that tranquilizer here, and he probably didn't think to bring a good book ...

Hi Wally, sorry we haven't come by sooner and left any comments but we did read the last dozen or so of your entries! You have an amazing life ... even if you sister does have freakishly long legs.

Hi, Wally. I think people there must be more than surprised. I hope he is ok.
Have a good night!

We were kinda scared by the bear!! He must have moved out west for better weather!

Also - my human loved your comment about "Shorty" - she is a height challenged human with freakishly tall parents and siblings!

Love ya - Dory
