Subject: RE: BS: Bear Encounters Part Two
Don't know about black bears here in Kent, but my black cat Meg can get prettttyy nasty if she doesn't get Friskies on time!! Looking back at the tale of the monkey hung in Hartlepool, I remember hearing a song about this, I think Jez Lowe may have written it. I recall the chorus which went;-

"Young folk, old folk, everyone and each Come and see the Frenchie that's washed up on the beach With his two long arms and a tail of hair We think he is a spy so we've hung him in the square" And to think that this is a true story! Geordies still refer to hanging the monkey when they want to upset their neighbours down the coast!
