BAD PARK BEARS GET TAKEN FOR A RIDE (Dec, 1930)
BAD PARK BEARS GET TAKEN FOR A RIDE
Unruly bears are taken for a ride at the Yosemite National Park. If Bruin becomes troublesome, a novel “patrol wagon” appears, in the shape of a large section of corrugated pipe sealed at one end and fitted with a trapdoor.
A park attendant detaches the pipe from its wheels and lures the bear inside with a piece of meat. The trapdoor makes him a speedy prisoner.
Under orders of the park superintendent, who invented the device, the sentence for any bear causing trouble in an inhabited portion of the park is banishment. A daub of paint identifies the miscreant in his disgrace.
