I lived in Newfoundland as a kid. We all had 'talks' about what happens if you see a moose. Now this was back in 1980, but we were told to go to a house, ANY house (OMG strangers!!) and tell them there was a moose wandering and ask if you could call your parents, or wait till it left.

LOL! Being in the general KW area, I can confirm first hand that there is indeed a shortage of bull moose in the area. We had a bear pass through a few years ago but swamp-donkeys are definately MIA.

I just read the article. I can only shake my head.

He was released unconditionally after no charges were made. How good of them. Makes holding him without any real reason (along with the strip-search) all okay. /sarcasm

oh, you mean having your little daughter drawing a picture of a gun isn't reason enough to arrest people and strip search them?

It's a close one. Had it been a model made of clay, maybe

Totally agree with you on that.

My friends and I used to 'shoot' each other with toy blocks that looked like guns in junior school and no one cared. It's crazy how far this fear has gone. I keep thinking there must be more to the story, but the sad thing is there probably isn't.

You know, you would think that, because these are generally the SAME people who are SO upset that kids see violence on television that that it MIGHT GIVE THEM IDEAS . . . that perhaps she got the idea from . . . TELEVISION????

It has gotten completely ridiculous.

In my niece's old elementary school, the kids couldn't even PRETEND to have guns. I'm not even kidding. The classic make-believe children's games like cops and robbers, soldier, Wild West, etc., were off limits. According to my sister-in-law, one child got in big trouble for simply pointing his forefinger at another student and shouting "bang!" while playing during recess.
