Natural Bridge Zoo bears with worse luck than Saddam

As the Roanoke Times reports here ("Hunter shoots 2nd bear from Natural Bridge Zoo, 12/16/03), the second of a pair of zoo bears on the loose because of the inadvertent failure to secure their pen has been killed. The second bear was shot by a hunter who didn't know there was a fugitive Asiatic black bear at large in the woods of Rockbridge County.

Unrelated to this, 10% of New Jersey's bears were killed and one governor is on the hotseat as the result of that state's recent bear season, as reported here.
