Popular children's book spurs bear hunts across the nation
March 26, 2020
Multiple sightings of bears have been reported across the area. A nationwide movement to hunt bears is underway, since schools have been closed due to COVID-19.
Based on the popular children's book, "We're Going on a Bear Hunt," by Michael Rosen, participants are urged to place a teddy bear in a front window of a neighborhood or business district. Then, families can entertain little ones with the viral pastime.
The book tells the story of three children and their parents, who, along with the family's dog, face fears and trudge through different terrains to find a bear.
