Police say persistent bear in East Tennessee trapped with chocolate candies

31 Aug

M&Ms. So good, they even attract bears!Authorities say a trap set with chocolate M&Ms caught a persistent bear that had been repeatedly showing up outside homes in Townsend trying get into garbage cans.

Townsend Police Chief Ron Suttles told The Knoxville News Sentinel that the bear wandered into the trap on Friday afternoon and he was pretty sure it was the same bear that had been frightening people in Sevier County.

Officials from the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency will be coming to get the bear and release it in the Cherokee National Forest.

Suttles said people in the area could see more bears this fall because the animals are ranging farther than normal from their feeding grounds in the forest.

Giant candy bar causes scare on Tacoma Narrows Bridge

29 Aug

Don’t go looking for Mr. Goodbar on the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. He’s not welcome.

A man caused a brief scare on the bridge Wednesday morning after someone reported he was carrying a suspicious package.

It turns out the item was a gigantic replica candy bar, according to Trooper Guy Gill, a State Patrol spokesman.

“It was called in as a suspicious package on the bridge, and we take that very seriously,” Gill said. “But then we go out there and find we are dealing with a big, old king-size candy bar.”

He said the bar — which was 6 feet tall and more than 2 feet wide — was an advertising prop for a type of candy that is typically sold as school fundraisers. The brand of candy is unknown.

According to Gill, the call came in just before 10 a.m. The individual who was holding the plastic candy bar was “trying to advertise on the bridge.”

“He was advised that that was not going to work, and he was like: ‘Oh, I didn’t really think about that,’ ” Gill said.

The candy-carrying culprit was then sent on his way.

“Can you actually think of a worst place to take your eyes off the road?” Gill said. “We definitely want all eyes forward.”
