Talk about a 'Showdown at High Noon', in this hilarious video provided by The NH State Police, a brazen bear appears to steal a bird feeder from a lawn and calmly saunters right past a State Trooper's vehicle.

Being the sports obsessed guy that I am, I can't help but draw some sort of analogy to The Boston Bruins stealing victory from the jaws of defeat in this current Stanley Cup Final. Right?

Ok, maybe that's a bit of a stretch.

But there is a very serious point to be made with the release of this video. Bring in your bird feeders! From the suburbs of Boston to the northern most counties of Maine, bear are running wild this season!

My cousin in Wakefield NH is still having problems with one even though he has removed all feed from his property. To steal (and misuse) a quote from 'Smokey The Bear' Only you can prevent bear invasion! Take your feeders down!
