Massachusetts Police Say Please Don’t Chase Bears While Drunk with a Hatchet

Talking Points Memo

In case you were considering getting drunk in Massachusetts and chasing bears with a hatchet, it is frowned upon.

North Adams, Massachusetts police posted on Facebook that someone had attempted to do the unthinkable. Police posted, “Chasing bears through the woods drunk with a dull hatchet is strongly not advised.”

No information was provided about the man that was taken into protective custody.

 

Bear sightings for the area are not unusual. Police urge people to leave bears alone and call the authorities instead of going all “Davy Crockett” on the bears.

You would think that not chasing bears with a dull hatchet was common sense. But there are always exceptions.
