I Can’t “Bear” The Nonsense!

Oh, please! Somebody save me from the onslaught of human ignorance, nonsense and general emotional clap trap!

Save Bears, an organization that seems to think much more of bears than humans, or at least think bears are humans, promote complete bear nonsense in order to get a better shot (no pun intended) at non thinkers’ bank accounts.

From Save Bears website, we find this:

And so, according to these misled people, bears express emotions. And just how do they do that? Is it that you have to catch up with one in the forest and just ask them how they feel? Will they answer you? Give you a thumbs up or thumbs down? It has already been determined that the only way anyone can truly assess whether any animal can feel pain or “express emotion” is by being able to communicate intelligently with them.

Then there’s this:

Bears are bright, that is as far as animals go, but fall short from being able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. Bears do have a remarkable sense of smell, as some studies seem to suggest a bear’s sense of smell is many times better than that of a bloodhound, but a bear doesn’t have X-ray vision, nor can he fly faster than a speeding bullet.

To state that a bear is “intelligent and quickly learn[s] from experience” is just a bit too foolish I’m thinking. If a bear is that smart then why do they keep coming back raiding dumpsters, trashing barbecue grills, busting down bird feeders, raiding garbage cans, tearing into cars, etc., only to get hauled away and released someplace? And if they are so damned intelligent, why do they find their way back to the same sites and then end up dead? Smart animal, cuddly too, and probably forgot to express some emotions, like the nonsensical ones on display by the not so intelligent bear lovers who don’t seem to learn any quicker than the bear.

Just nonsense!
