A wild story of a black bear breaking into an Idaho kitchen...
Ketchum, Idaho (AP) - A black bear in search of a late-night snack broke into an Idaho house and licked leftover Chinese food from a cast iron pan on the stove.
David Edwards of Ketchum said that his dog's barking awakened him.
When he went to investigate, he saw the bear on its hind legs, paws on the stove, licking a pan.
Edwards' wife had fallen asleep on the couch and he woke her up and led her into the bedroom without telling her about the furry dish washer.
Edwards went back into the kitchen to find the bear was gone and the pan was clean. Edwards credits his dog, Stanley, for waking him up before the bear got father into the house.
A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.
