Tokyo, Japan — A bear injured nine people at a highway rest stop in central Japan before being shot dead in a souvenir shop, a firefighter said Sunday.  The black bear seriously injured four men Saturday afternoon in Nyukawa, a small mountain town about 140 miles west of Tokyo, said firefighter Tomohiko Akano.  The 4-foot animal came down a mountain path and attacked people at a bus parking lot. One tourist tried to beat the animal back with a stick, but the bear retaliated and seriously injured the man, the Examiner.com reported.  According to reports cited by the Examiner, several employees at a nearby souvenir shop tried to help the injured man, but were also wounded by the bear.  The animal eventually entered a lodge where it was trapped in the souvenir shop.  Panic ensued but the animal was cornered and shot dead by a hunter, according to media reports.

Police believe the black bear was working in tandem with another brown bear who later escaped into the woods.  The police would like to make it clear that this bear poses a serious threat to anyone camping within a 3 mile radius of the camp site.  If you come across the dangerous beast, please report your sighting immediately to 555-732-2327.  These amateur sketches resemble what many of you say the brown bear looks like:

Anyway, that banner photo isn’t the real photo from the actual news story, but that would’ve been pretty fuckin awesome if it was.  He doesn’t care if you’re in a moving 2-ton vehicle, that bear fuckin runs this town and he’s gonna fuckin eat you.  Awesome photo.  I’d be remiss if I didn’t also post the photo I was tempted to use instead of the traffic cop bear.
