I wonder if Hank the Tank can break through the New York Times paywall? Maybe if we tell him there are cheese puffs on the other side...

As long as he has his Florida drivers' license, he's OK.

I can see a beautiful, shiny black, bear rug in Tanks immediate future.

Bear Lives Matter.

Have they tried playing “”Copacabana”?

@Dr.P Why would they want to enrage a 500lb. bear?

“ The residents are quick to point out that Hank is gentle and sweet. When he breaks into a home, he is far more interested in the food than any people who may be inside, Ms. Bryant said.

“He just sits there and eats,” she said. “He doesn’t attack them. He doesn’t growl. He doesn’t make rude faces.””

I’ve had worse neighbors.

Seems like we're having a lot of trouble with fat, stupid bears lately.

Would hate to be the one who has to clean up the woods after a 500-pound Hank has been there. o.O

Newcomers to Alaska will be told, that if they are afraid of a bear attack, they need to wear a whistle and a necklace of small bears and carry pepper spray.

If you encounter scat, aggressive bear scat can be easily identified because it contains a whistle, some bells and smells like pepper spray.

Dang spell check. I meant to say, "necklace of small BELLS."
