CULLOWHEE, N.C. - Police at Western Carolina University and wildlife officials were investigating the discovery early Monday of a dead bear cub draped with a pair of Barack Obama campaign signs.
Leila Tvedt, associate vice chancellor for public relations, said Monday night that maintenance workers found the 75-pound bear cub shot to death in front of the school's administration building at the entrance to campus. The Obama yard signs were stapled together and placed over the bear's head, Tvedt said.
The bear had been shot in the head, Tvedt said.

21 AM on Oct. 21, 2008 by: BlueFrogMama To play devil's advocate, why is it anymore cruel than hunting? The article said it is bear season in NC. The bear wasn't tortured, it was shot just like any other hunted animal. It's certainly weird how the bear was left, but I don't see why it is necessarily cruel, unless a person thinks that hunting itself is cruel.
Do you not see what is so disgusting about this? A BLACK bear cub was killed and covered with Obama signs. If you cannot make the connection here, you are beyond help.
