Like all the Hank the Cowdog books this was very hilarious.
One day Slim sees a bear run across the road and Hank and Drover think he saw a burro. That night Hank and Drover sleep over at Skim's house. They drank from the toilet when it had cleaner in it and Hank threw up under Slim's bed. Slim never found out. Loper leaves with his family for three days. Hank takes the chance to steal Pete's food only to be tricked into eating his own food. Slim talks to deputy Bobby Kyle who says there's a wild bear running loose. Hank does a perimeter check and finds Wallace and Junior. After Wallace trys to throw up on him Hank leaves. That night it reached -30 degrees. The bear ended up in the barn near Slim's house and chases Slim into the house. The bear breaks through the door and Hank, Drover and Slim hide in a frozen pickup. Deputy Kyle comes and uses a tranquilizer on the bear. Happy Ending!
END OF SPOILER ALERT
If you haven't read Hank the Cowdog before I suggest you do. They are great books and you never run out!
