Slow down. Bear crossing! (in Rolling Fork, MS)

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

Rolling Fork, Mississippi is the home of the Teddy Bear and Blues great Muddy Waters.

In 1902 President Theodore Roosevelt came to Rolling Fork on a bear hunting trip. When he refused to shoot a captured young bear, the Teddy Bear legend began.

Klasse Tom, solche Schilder findet man in der Lüneburger Heide eher selten ;-) Like & Gruß Reiner

This is the first one I have seen! You will not find it very often even in the wilds of Canada.

..but, We have signs near garbage dumps in Ontario Do not feed the bears!

Tom*, ich bin durch Kanada & USA gereist, auf der Pan-Americana bis Argentinien. Alles Gute, Gruß Reiner
