So, those of you who mocked the hell out of Betsy DeVos for saying that schools may need guns to protect themselves from grizzlies, had best take two steps back. Two schools in Connecticut went on alert this week when a black bear was spotted nearby. Police were notified, and no students or teacher were harmed. It was a black bear, and not a grizzly, but those things can still do some damage if properly motivated. There were no reports of gunfire from the school, or the bear, in conjunction with the sighting.
