Poems about bears and trash


After reading this sad story about a “garbage-conditioned” bear “destroyed” by police for getting caught breaking into someone’s house looking for yummy trash, I commenced an internet search for “bear aware” and found this amusing poetry contest. Entries had to be a haiku using the words “bear,” “garbage” and, improbably, “shorts”. Shorts kind of killed it for me, but whatever.

    As a dumpster diver who is sometimes frustrated by something I just can’t reach, or can see inside a locked dumpster behind a fence, I feel the bears’ pain. i hope noone shoots me one day… poor bears.
