Evil Teen Cries Wolf!
"A 14-year-old boy on Vancouver Island who claimed he was attacked by a bear while he was jogging made up the story, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said.
Police Sgt. Kevin Murray said the boy, who lives in Port Alberni, British Columbia, acknowledged the fabrication after some hard questioning Thursday, the Victoria Times-Colonist reported. His admission came only after conservation officers spent a wet and chilly night beating the bushes for the bear and finding no sign of one." UPI
The boy`s parents should be liable for the expenses incurred by the conservation officers in searching for the bear that didn`t exist.
Lying to law enforcement authorities is a crime in almost every country, the young punk should spend some time in a juvenile detention center.
This incident could have ended in tragedy, if the conservation officers had found an innocent bear, he would most likely have been put to death.
Even if a bear had attacked the boy, the animal shouldn`t be killed. The woods is the natural habitat of the wild animal, and we pay the consequences when we invade their turf.
I hope there`s a PETA chapter in Port Alberni, animal rights activists need to put the fear of God in this wretched kid.
