The 56-year-old Democrat woke Wednesday night to the sound of bears in his back yard, getting in to his bird feeders. He tried to chase the bears away, but they kept coming back.
"The bears were hungry and had just come out of hibernation," Allen said. "Seeing them in this residential neighborhood was highly unusual."
The governor stepped out on to his porch to pull down the feeders and one of the bears charged him. He made it back inside, but apparently it was a close call.
Now, there are a few things this brings to mind. Why did the man go out into the yard with bears? Did he get out into the yard, or was he on the porch the whole time? What charged him? An adult or a cub?
Sorry, Gov. Might've been an easier day if Booker hadn't one-upped you already.
Peter Shumlin attacked by bears. Where's Cory Booker when you need him?
