This morning’s stand-out story on the Beeb:
A bold amphibious escape bid by a bear at Berlin zoo has been foiled in a dramatic shoot-out. Juan the Andean spectacled bear first paddled across a moat using a log for a raft, then scaled a wall. Finally he appeared to commandeer a bicycle, before zookeepers with brooms cornered him, and a colleague picked him off with a tranquiliser gun.
I don’t meant to be picky, but… doesn’t a “dramatic shoot-out” depend on both parties being armed? Unless they’re not telling us something, and that this bear had managed to get a gun from somewhere too – now that would be pretty fucking cool. Scary, but cool.
