Fort Walton Beach, Florida
We Have Bears and Amatuers!
This bear crossing sign isn't a joke. There are quite a few black bears in the area. A couple of years ago, the employees at a local hamburger place began seeing one come out of the woods and raid their dumpster for discarded hamburgers. The wildlife folks put out a large "culvert" trap and baited it with hamburgers. Sure enough, they caught a bear. It was taken about 60 miles away to a national forest and released.
I had to check my dictionary to be sure. Is it "amateur" or is it "amatuer"? I bet the local ham radio operators leave this sign as it is (its been there for years) to see if anyone notices!
Of course, even paradise had problems.
We're no exception!
