Tears for Bozo

    Sad news out of Bushkill Pa., where a hunter has shot and killed what residents say is a tame, friendly bear they’ve dubbed Bozo.

    According to the Pocono Record, Bozo also set a record as the largest bear ever taken down in the state, but the hunter, David Price, says he’s devastated to have taken down a bear loved by the community.

    Bozo was apparently tamed by the groundskeeper at a local resort, who says he too is devastated at the loss, having considered Bozo “a friend.”
