Bear Attacks Village ... in India ... Killing 8 People

So, in my quest to bring you the news that the OTHER folks will not report

Here is One

Wild Bear Attacks Village in India Killing 8 Persons

Watch out for those drunk bears

Eight people were killed and five more were injured within 24 hours in the Kotpad area of Koraput district due to wild bear attack. Forest officials said a team from the Nandankanan Zoological Park in Bhubaneswar was called in to capture the errant bear by using tranquilizers. 

The villagers had been upset with the killings by the bear. (ya think? ... 

 Before it was captured, they blocked roads at several places in Kotpad. 

Eyewitnesses said the animal was first hit by a jeep.

Then it was beaten to death by the angry villagers.

 Forest officials said the bear might have strayed out of the jungle lured by the smell of cashew apples and mahua flower. 

Consumption of mahua might have intoxicated the bear following which it could have turned violent.

I love how this story is written
