A Special Tourist
This Memorial Day weekend, a black bear swam across the Cape Cod Canal. The bear was approximately two and a half years old and weighed 180 pounds. Over a two-week period, he made his way to Provincetown at the outer tip of the Cape. Residents followed the bear’s daily progress; it was the main topic of conversation. When some folks were determined to see him first hand, officials made the decision to resettle the bear in central Massachusetts, for his own safety as well as his excited groupies. No sooner was he resettled than he started east again, turning up in Brookline. Guess where he was going? Everyone loves to visit Cape Cod. This time the officials moved the little guy to western Massachusetts. We all hope he’ll make his way back to visit us again.
