And an animal story from Asheville, where Wednesday a black bear wandered into town about lunchtime. Police officers stayed close, as did numerous onlookers, as Yogi wandered from Beaumont Street to Biltmore Avenue to Ashton Street and South Lexington Avenue.

The creature spent some time at the First Presbyterian Church, this Citizen-Times article notes, where it "contentedly munched on berries." Unknown if grace was said before eating. The newspaper also posted some nifty and lengthy video footage with the story. 

Now when you pick a pawpaw, or a prickly pear; and you prick a raw paw, next time beware. Don't pick the prickly pear by the paw; when you pick a pear, try to use the claw. Sound advice from songwriters Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman.
