The white man immediately broke another treaty with the black bears. When the black bears deposited the check in the First National Bank of the Black Bears the check bounced for non sufficient funds.
This is a copy of the bounced check.
The black bears fought a gorilla war with the settlers of the now named Seward range.....And that is kind of funny if you think about it......as black bears in gorilla suits is kind of cool.
But on December 29th, 1890 the Wounded Paw massacre happened. The black bear leader Yogi bear and over 100 other black bears were massacred by the 7th calvary from the New York DEC.
The black bears were forced on to reservations after that to live a life suppressed by whitey. A big blow came in the early 21st century when the evil DEC of New York enacted a bear cannister rule to prevent black bears from eating meals.....Because of this drastic measure black bears are now being starved out of existence.
So black bears were not properly paid for the Seward Range since the $7,200,000.00 check bounced, and then the black bears are forced to forage for food in McDonald's parking lots.
The next time you are hiking the Seward Range you better get your check book out to pay the black bears (and no starter checks), or they might just attack you in their gorilla suits.
