Maybe you’ve seen the gone-viral “3 Bear Cubs Rescued” video on TV this week, and know what I’m talking about. If not, relax and enjoy the photos. A friend* who knows them very well sent me still shots of this wild bear and her younguns, all of whom have truly become famous overnight.
entertained the residents of this neighborhood of Ruidoso, New Mexico for years. They live there. Myrtle has triplets about every other year, and the residents never rat her out to the forest service because they know Myrtle would never make it in the wild – she is a true dumpster bear.
I especially love wild-thang Myrtle (top of page) lying in the street in her lady pose. Of course, as my niece reminded me, we all love doing that pose.
*Linda Allen is my friend, Myrtle’s neighbor, and I bribed her to lend me these photos. All I have to do is mention that she is the local consultant/distributor of Ugli Butter and other soothing Tropiceel products. You can contact Linda at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more, to order Tropiceel products or to snag yourself a sample. Tell her Myrtle sent ya.
