A bear has become an unwanted guest in one Croatian town after learning how to knock on the door to trick people into letting it in.
The 35-stone monster knocked at the door of the Loknar family from Gerovo in western Croatia three times and they are now refusing to answer the door, ananova reports.
“I opened the door and saw him standing there and I didn’t believe my eyes at first, then I ran for it as he walked in as if it was the most normal thing in the world,” mother Nevenka Loknar said.
“Bears are a common thing in the woods around here, but no one has ever heard of a bear that knocks at the door.
“The bear is so intelligent it’s incredible.”
It appears as though the bear got lucky when he nudged the door for the first time and has continued to do so since believing he will get an answer again.

Hectic work day yesterday. when I got home, I pretty much just switched off. Lots of fatigue…but I got a ton done. Weekend approaches swiftly again.
Looks like the hurricanes will leave my region alone for now.
I wish the “one” campaign was a little more specific about how they want to end poverty. I see what they want to do, but don’t quite see how it will be implemented.
Not nearly enough time with MP yesterday. Had supper with Danny ad Subway, and we gabbed a bit. He brought me a present of The Bard’s Tale, which was a pleasant surprise. I haven’t installed it yet, but it looks like fun. I forgot to get my Tiki Cup.
I told MP that I thought about her snuggled close when I went to sleep at night. She replied playfully “you don’t think about me during the day?” and gave me a triple-threat smooch. (both cheeks, and then on the kisser.) She’s flattered when I wear the cologne she got me. She also told me that she didn’t want me to suffer while she’s gone.. I’ll be pretty cool, I think, as long as she heads back to the states in Sept like she plans. I’ll be fairly peeved if that doesn’t come to pass.
Bro talked to me, and he told me that he hadn’t seen me put on my rage-face on like I did when that whole almost-fight happened en route to the bus station. I haven’t had to manhandle my bro in ages, and I think he was surprised when I kind of pulled him out of the way and intervened between him and the other guy.
There’s a part of me that *really* wanted to commit violence on the BS-guy. Pounding the devil out of him, and taking a few hits would’ve been cleansing. That sort of behavior is wholly inappropriate, but the caveman inside would’ve been happy for a few minutes.
I wouldn’t mind a sparring partner or a good long session smacking the heavy bag.
Forehead Inflation. – via temporary saline injection – Maybe not for the squeamish.
I’ve got the Nairobi Trio playing Solfeggio in my head over and over. That’s not necessarily a bad thing.
I miss the Ernie Kovacs show.
What the heck… over 800 hits yesterday on the easter manatee entry? What’s causing folks to go back to the end of march back to tag it? it’s not direct picture links.. it’s the entry itself. different locations, assorted browsers… and it’s not from google or yahoo search. no referral links.
Tropical Storms Cindy and Dennis may be on the way? Seedling hurricanes.
I’m not too worried about Cindy….
But Dennis is a distinct possibility. Would I be selfish to hope I could hole up from the storm with MP for the weekend?
