    This is pretty wild!

    Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife Game Warden Dave Jones says he was just as shocked by reports of a dead grizzly bear on Whatcom County beach last week as anyone else. In fact, he was so surprised, he went out to the beach just north of the Cherry Point Refinery to check it out for himself. “That absolutely was 100% a grizzly bear,” Jones told The Bellingham Herald.

    Could ocean currents have brought it south from BC? There are grizz as far south as Whistler/Squamish area on mainland BC.

    Based on the height of the Fraser and that many griz are lower down feeding this year due to slow melt, it might have washed down the river and then floated back in to shore.

    The prevailing theory here is that it likely came from Squamish/Howe Sound, and the current took him to Cherry Point.

    Ok that explains the bear found in the ocean but what about the bluefin tuna found in the woods?

    Pretty sure they stopped trying to figure it out after “Massachusetts”. Maybe they pressed on, but then stopped again at “Gloucester”.

    I still call it The Jake.

    While few details on the matter were available, Maj. Patrick Moran of the Environmental Police told the Gloucester Times that the investigation is of its kind the department has handled."


    Major Moran is on the job!

    ^^ that whole incident was a few years ago, as it unfolded it turned out that it involved alcohol, a pissed-off drunken fisherman who hadn't been paid so he stole the fish (which had been caught illegally to start with and couldn't be sold) from his boss, alcohol, and alcohol.

    The part where he dragged the fish behind his pickup because he couldn't pick it up and left a trail of fish blood, scales and ground tuna to follow was entertaining.

    Looks like Major Moran solved the case then. And I'm not shocked it involved a drunk fisherman. Pretty funny story.

    Maybe it was a South Polar Bear just trying to get home.

    Antarctica means no bears are allowed.
