You Can Own A Pair Of Jeans Specially Shredded By Lions, Tigers Or Bears (Oh My!)

Tiger Destroying Denim
Zoo Jeans!

The Mineko Club, a volunteer group in Hitachi City, Japan, is selling jeans personally shredded by animals to raise money for wildlife conservation. Lions, tigers and bears at the Kamine Zoo were given toys covered in the denim to tear into, creating a “worn-in” look. The denim was then sewn to create the pants, Zoo Jeans, which are being auctioned online through Monday. The tiger-designed pair’s current price is well into the thousands, which proves this bizarre fundraising idea was brilliant. As a person who gets beyond annoyed when I see “distressed” jeans going for triple the price because some factory machine or employee ripped them up for show, it’s awesome to see a pair of pants that were torn up in a more, well, authentic way.

Bear Crashes Birthday Party By Falling Through Family’s Skylight, Proceeds To Eat All The Cupcakes

A Juneau, Alaska, couple was prepping for their child’s birthday party at their home when they received a visit from a surprise party crasher — a 180-pound black bear who fell through the skylight. The couple ran out of the room, but the bear wasn’t about to show himself out before he got a chance to nom on the party cupcakes. I can’t say I blame him. Who would walk away from free cupcakes?

Even Brown Bears Like Oral Sex

Birds do it, bees do it … even brown bears in Croatia do it. The journal Zoo Biology in Croatia has observed brown bears performing oral sex on each other over a period of six years, witnessing it 28 times! But Live Science really buries the lead here: it’s not just that the bears were doing the nasty, but it was two male bears doing it. Keep reading »

This Bear Is Having The Best Weekend

This Bear Is Having The Best Weekend

I am so envious of this super chill black bear right now. Look at him, all laid back in a hammock, soaking in the warm pre-summer air, like a boss. Daytona Beach homeowner Vincent James spotted the bear kickin’ back in his yard for a solid 20 minutes before being spooked by something and leaving — only to return a little while later for more chill time. I realize bears are scary beasts, but I sure wouldn’t mind lying end to end with him if he’d make a little room… [Gawker]

The Daily Squee: Just Some Baby Black Bears Sparring Adorably

The Daily Squee: Just Some Baby Black Bears Sparring Adorably
"Come at me, bro!"

Coming back to work after a three-day weekend is such a buzzkill. Let’s cheer things up around here with this video of two baby black bears roughhousing in some lucky bastard’s backyard. I know these adorable little guys are going to grow up to be beasts that can kill you with one sweep of a mighty bear paw, but goddamn, they’re adorable and cuddly-looking at this age. [HyperVocal]

The Gasoline Huffing Bears Of Russia Need Help

Gasoline huffing has become a serious problem for brown bears living on the Kronotsky Nature Reserve in Russia. The bear population has gotten into the kerosene and gasoline, which is used to power the reserve’s helicopters and generators, and have become addicted. The 1,200 pound creatures have taken to stealing fuel barrels, sniffing them until they get woozy and digging holes to pass out in.

Photographer Igor Shpilenok spent seven months documenting these bears and captured them in various stages gasoline use. According to Shpilenok, some of the bears have become so hard up to feed their addiction that they stalk departing helicopters so they can sniff the fumes at takeoff. That sounds like rock bottom to me. Maybe Jeff VanVonderen or Candy Finnigan can help. No bear deserves to live that way. [The Fixx[Photo credit: Igor Shpilenok]

Actually, bears only fall like this when they’re on tranquilizers. This guy wandered into a CU-Boulder dorm complex and up into a tree, and wildlife officials had to drug him. Don’t worry, he landed safely on that mat … and looked damn cute doing it. [The Daily Beast]

Look at this bear. Now look away from this bear and look at your man. Is your man as manly as this bear? What if I told you this bear was actually just a fancy decanter for a stick of Old Spice? Are you more or less attracted to this bear? Why are you attracted to this bear anyway? That’s just weird. [$19.99, Old Spice]
