The Atlantic Wire highlights this story:
The Wall Street Journal's two-plus million print subscribers got a nice surprise on Monday: a front-page Journal article with the headline, "Near Lake Tahoe There's a Bear So Tough, Bullets Bounce Off His Head." As if that wasn't enticing enough, it runs with the deck, "'Bubba' Is Blamed for at Least 50 Home Invasions and His Crime Spree Isn't Over." Who is this bear's publicist and how can the Atlantic Wire hire him?
The Journal's Marie Baca travels to Incline Village, Nevada, to chronicle the hunt for "a 700-pound black bear dubbed Bubba," who has "broken into at least 50 homes in search of food the past year, causing more than $70,000 of damage" in the rural Lake Tahoe community.
Last Thanksgiving, he ate 20 jars of peanut butter.
