This bear has been caught red-pawed, foraging in a garbage can in Shohola, PA.

The last straw

When someone orders a large, cold drink from most fast-food places, it typically comes in a plastic cup with a plastic lid and a plastic straw. It seems the plastic straw may soon become a thing of the past in many locations.
