Bear tries to pull Girl Scout from tent

Bear tries to pull N.J. Girl Scout from tent at Pa. camp
Eds: Story contributed on-cycle by The Express-Times of Easton.
WHITE HAVEN, Pa. (AP) — A bear tried to pull a Girl Scout out of her tent, causing the Girl Scouts to ban tent camping at Camp Mosey Wood for the next two weekends.
Celeste Tietz, 11, of Franklin Township, N.J., said Wednesday that she managed to grab a tent pole and slide out of her sleeping bag as the bear was tugging at it early Sunday morning.
“I was sleeping and I woke up because I fell on the floor,” Tietz told The Express-Times of Easton. “Then something started pulling me towards the front of my tent and tried to pull me out.”
She and the other girls in the tent began screaming for help. Adults then loaded the girls, about 15 of them, into a van and took them to the camp’s mess hall.
Ann Meredith, chief executive officer of the Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania, said the camp will not allow girls to sleep in tents this coming weekend or the following weekend.
“Everybody will be using cabins and there will be no outside cooking,” Meredith said.
Campers and adult leaders get bear education when they register for camp, Meredith said.
“Bears are a fact of life,” Meredith said. “We’re living in their habitat.”

“I was sleeping and I woke up because I fell on the floor,”


Why did I laugh hard when I read that? :b
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

That's what you get for keeping a ham in your sleeping bag!

I'm pretty sure they use the army-style canvas tents since this is a full-time scout camp. That means cots and a wooden platform floor

Phew :-° . That could have ended badly. :o

I bet that bear is getting a real hard time from the other bears for running scared from a bunch of screaming Girl Scouts.

I just heard this on the news tonight. Glad everything ended well. She's getting a badge of bravery, with a bear on it. :b

Can't really blame the bear, from what I remember from my Boy Scout days is Girl Scouts are pretty tasty. O:)

There's a part of me that is honestly a little disturbed by this news. Then again, there's a part of me that wonders if the Girl Scout didn't follow through with delivering the bear's cookie order and he was taking things into his own hands (or paws).
