In case you missed it over the weekend, our beloved bear was captured in Everett and returned to his home in the wild. He was eating berries on a hillside when they caught him. (They shot him with tranquilizer darts.) He is three years old and weighs 180 pounds--so he isbigger than Elijah Wood.
Much as we were rooting for him in his epic escape, it's good to know the guy's back home. After all, the saying isn't "Does a bear shit in Everett?"
In other cute, lost wildlife news, former SW cover girl Cindy Hales and her friend Akiko Carver found an abandoned gosling--dubbed "Tiny Goose"--in when canoeing. It has since been moved to Hales' sister's farm where geese roam, seamlessly joining a group of goslings of the same age. Pictures of Tiny Goose and a final dedication to our bear after the jump:
