Post residents have begun participating in the nearly worldwide bear hunt
Lions, tigers and bears, oh my!
Post residents have recently begun participating in the nearly worldwide bear hunt spearheaded by Tennessee resident Shanna Bonner Groom who posted the idea in her neighborhood’s private Facebook group after seeing it floating around social media.
Now, the hunt has reached 13 countries and all 50 states.
Inspired by Michael Rosen’s 1989 children’s book We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, children (and adults) can play by spying teddy bears conspicuously perched in windows of local homes and businesses – no traps or bait needed.
Besides providing a way to keep kids busy during this extra-long break, bear hunting offers a perfect way to practice social distancing while not having to socially isolate.
One Post resident said she has spotted over 44 stuffed bears in town, concluding that there are probably even more since her last count.
One thing is for sure, everyone can participate! All you must do is find a teddy bear (no teddy bear, no problem – other stuffed animals are welcome too) and place it in your window to bring smiles to everyone who passes by.
