Bear attacks tourists at bus station
Agence France-Presse –September 20, 2009—-A BEAR was shot dead overnight after it attacked nine people, including tourists, at a bus station in a mountainous area of central Japan…Four men were seriously injured in the attack in Takayama, Gifu prefecture…more…
Here’s a video of the bear in question lunching on one of the tourists while some of the people yell at it: “BAD BEAR!”
I am sure that the rest-of-the-story was that the bear failed to buy any Omiyage/souvenirs in the Japanese gift shop were the bear was “trapped.”
Only then did the gift shop have poor bear killed, skinned to put on display, while they put up its gall bladder for sale on Yahoo Japan Auctions as a Japanese “enhancement” kampo/medicine.
