When the Governor filled the bird feeders in his rented Montpelier home’s back yard, he thought he was just feeding his feathered neighbors. Late Wednesday night he learned differently… and proved that he can run faster than the average bear.
Governor Shumlin was in bed when he heard a commotion in the back yard. Looking out, he saw a mama and her two cubs (there turned out to be another bear out there, too) trying to bring down the birdfeeders. Our intrepid Governor ran out in his bare feet to attempt to scare the bears off… that is, until one of the adults charged at him.
Sprinting for the house, Shumlin made it to the back porch and inside with about three feet to spare.
So, does anyone have a pick-a-nick basket we can donate to his bears? I’d hate for them to catch him next time.
