Poetic Justice: Idiot Beekeeper Shot By His Bear Booby Trap!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A beekeeper in Loveland is recovering after he accidentally shot himself with a booby trap shotgun in a box, deputies said.


John Frost was shot in the hand and leg Nov. 4, according to an incident report filed by a Larimer County sheriff`s deputy.

Frost told investigators a bear had knocked over his beehive the day before and ate some of his honey. Frost said he was cleaning his gun in case the bear came back."

John Frost is a contender for biggest Turkey of the year, his booby trap was dangerous to our animal friends and to human beings. The idiot built a booby trap shotgun in a box, it was rigged with a trip wire near the beehive. A child could have triggered the booby trap with fatal results.

But even if a honey-loving bear was the victim, it`s still dead wrong. What gives this clown the right to kill a bear in cold-blood simply because the creature was doing what comes naturally to bears: Eat honey.

It was poetic justice that this oxygen thief was shot in the hand, the same hand that built the booby trap. Frost should be charged with reckless endangerment of animals and human beings.
