Bear and MilitantsPosted: November 4, 2009
They say help could come from places you didnt expect. For those who missed this, two militants didnt think much about bears, or encroaching on what the bear called home. Read this, and you will get the drift. Well, something for all to learn from … dont mess with them. They may look cute, but they are not, not if you encroach on their space. Now, the same could be said of the Indian Army. Ask the girls who used to go ga-ga over the young men from IMA, hanging out at Mussoorie, or Dehradun, and thats what you would get (no, probably not the way it was maybe 20 years back, but nevertheless …). They may look cute, but they arent so, if you mess with them, encroach on their space.
For this, i guess, the Army got some valuable help from the bear, who wasnt going to bear with any not-so-beary business from these militants, guns or no, he didnt even give them the time to poke those guns at him. Hmm … this is interesting. The fauna have decided that they arent quite happy with non-indigenous people trying to walk into their lair, and they are going to do something about it. And that too, messing with one of the fiercest ones around. Of course, militants still have the choice of trying to mess with the Gir Lion, or the Royal Bengals, or the Pariyar Elephants, but unlikely they would get any different reception from these members of royalty, so they probably shouldnt even try. Go, wildlife … get them!
