Oh Gilani stressed that reorganized or two ago I mean these these are very nice. Improper hotels in all of his proper decorum there and I've met the blooms all know and a bureau sleepy bear I've been like that. But we call ahead because there there was some mobility problems because my. It was my knee. My hip and now I so we call ahead to see if there will be a wheelchair available at the next oats now and they said they didn't have one. I think when this is today upscale European hotel they don't have it down okay. But I had to I had to get him through the hotel whatever so never that I came up organized. Aren't there is fair it's each man at the hotel. And I said let's commandeer that luggage rack. OK so what we did you seen those hotels they have the brass luggage racks okay. I got up and stood inside the luggage rack and he wheeled me into Google wannabes. Like. Like freight. You know and the marriages that that's the last thing the manager wants the state is to have his guess one Wheeling the other and luggage rack. I spoke. But this early enough. He gets so mad they found a wheelchair now hide it well I I don't know if they went out bought one. A rent that one or you know whatever.

Channeled through the channel four. And I wish her the bezel like I guess her husband works for. So that I don't know if that's any reason or not but she's going to be a weekend anchor and reporter refuted so that's it. That is about that anything go on and closed on the last couple weeks in buffalo that I should know by know what's hot and I give that a sitting on my computer than it was Javier. It was very steamy of very successful taste of buffalo last weekend I miss chase that's threaded their buddy Chuck Schumer was there would design henchmen. No science to come meet Chuck Schumer or for anybody Hackl them. BI exactly did he have a radio podium and called press conference probably dead I think those signs that said welcome Chuck Schumer actually turned into a podium so if anything happened if trump said anything publicly. He could be there right ago guy or you know he's against bad asparagus whatever it might it Jack Chuck Schumer is your guy. That will I help you out so I missed taste that that's a big VO I missed the heat wave that's a big ordering rounds. And Vanilla Ice towels over their eyes babe you've got your organizer. I didn't we actually had friends in from out of town so. You actually have friends. Now more than two audio. Well that don't come and ask them I haven't signed up. Well I'm glad now we're ready to go and the bear is the story right now that everybody is talking about or at least most people are. First of all let me let me just do my disclaimer at the beginning of this part of a show. I love animals. I love animals. All animals. If I accidentally oh if one flies in in my car on I'm going on the highway feel badly about it. It ruins my whole day I you know I love animals are support animals I want animals will be safe and healthy. But sometimes we get a little crazy. And I think as I said before. As I said before the Walt Disney. Is the man responsible for this because Walt Disney is the man who took animals from the wild kingdom of which they were born. And made them into creatures that we can converse with have coffee will have to have a bagel. Whatever the date saying they danced they play the banjo and all the stuff. Keep in mind a black there will kill you if given an opportunity just revealed now okay he they're Q. I don't I think we see it on TV all the time. But the bottom line is I I would take the cameras police at their word when they said that there was something they had to do and for reasons number one. Nobody has says given me any indication that there be a reason somebody would enjoy. Killing a bear like that for just fun. Or just because they wanted true I think that they wouldn't do it must they had to and are now the reason I'm bringing it up now there's a memorial. There's a roadside memorial. To the bear. We have you know things that they put on the side of the road when knowing something bad happens and I think he won all. While wall first of all a bear is bad enough I know I've I've watched enough. Enough nature shows the velvet. A bear with cubs as. Very dangerous this bear didn't have cubs but this bear the Korean conflict was injured. Certainly an injured bear will be nothing you'll wanna get anywhere in there because they said he was only using. Three. Fate was not using the four of the fourth foot or leg. And and so was injured if you don't wanna get anyone in here and injured animal like that. Because they're ferocious. Yeah they look Q and guess what we've all had Teddy bears haven't week. Well currently prayers and you've seen baby bears and ms. goldilocks and the three bears. I mean we've got the Chicago Bears we got dub there is. We love bears and we should continue to love bears but we can have injured bears. Walking around in a heavily. Is heavily. I'm human districts in the areas that will be on his own habits that I'm aware and as far as I know hammers those have humans and it and that's true. And we can you imagine. I I'd I want holy picture view imagining if that bear had killed any money. After the police had a chance to and dispose of the bear because of the sickness can you imagine what kind of outcry there would be now. And it would be grossly unfair so I'm gonna take the police have their words they were out of time and our. In our history where we don't believe anything the police. That's baloney I believe the place on this if they think they have eight. A reason a substantial reason and necessary reason to do it and they did it I would say it's unfortunately had to. But that does not fall yeah on the wrong side of the cameras police department and they had to do with they had to and they did. And if they hadn't done it you would be after a very high so I wanted to know from you. Have we overreacted. City Amherst black bear a situation as you know black mayors matter I told you that the beginning of a show. It's older grizzly bears so little polar bear is sort of any kind of bears we love bears. But we can't Hamlin wrong injured like that apparently got hit by a car. I think while I was on vacation and so it's there's been around. It's a got hit by a car and what do you do women animal was injured I know what they have to do with the horses if the forum down. With some injuries they have to put him down. And so it's sad as it is I think it was necessary. You'll all all right although it's sad and you know joyous about it but are you all right with the cameras police what they did. With the black bear and what do you think the memorial for the bears. Little over the top. I know it's it's sad. I'll give you that it is sad. But I think it's all sold in the top what do you guys think it's fingers over the top and I'm not big on roadside memorials and uneven so yeah I think that's a bit over the top over the top dozen big event. Yeah I think guy that's over the top and like you said immediate and it it stinks that the wildlife had to go but I think it was the better for the community you know so it's set at one point put it. We're kind of beating this dead there. A dead horse oldies version that was there is is that there doesn't there. OK okay. And then go wells is an alternative boom boom at their low and your pick Nebraska into the oh well take a break and we'll have more who wanted to from new industrial Montreal on 806169. Through 6930. The cameras black bear it is said we love them you love them. But is this memorial took a bear a little bit over the top. At a UK okay with what the cameras police and I absolutely. Am would back after today's the day from my buffalo purses they 50% off air duct cleaning and dryer vent cleaning. From pure air care. He enjoyed playing fewer air in your home would 99 dollar air duct and dryer vent cleaning from pure air care go to my buffalo perks dot com. A of Kirsten Gillibrand Symbian and they give bike ride she's very much in favor of saving the planet. And I I think she should I mean they usually usually politicians have been as an event it was I have more than a 120 people Bennett. They show up I think LB and I think for Kirsten though maybe chuck should always show up put his podium Alia. In the naked bike ride with an hour show on who'll enjoy the sea in the make it better by Greg would you not like this I think a Schumer and Joseph program that would be an easy choice yeah I think that you list not cement block. I practicing the mayor do. I I would because he would do it and a assume without pants. I think I've got a tie that's. Whatever it. I don't know I think I have the mighty python. Series when he was at that he had no need to follow. So are asking. Blood of animals as a picture of a black bear India buffalo and those who went of them and I hate to see anything happen any of them. But the bottom line is it's dangerous. Especially a bear if it's injured that is very very dangerous but I can tell you. This is a bomb NC. Any equipment arm to move my glasses. But anyway. If BC right now forty information. That was like people a starter or pose like that you always Steve lips turned upside down to see their personal and some. For York in I'll read like it's written okay I'm gonna get in the mood of the person that posted its. For your information. And you'll feminization is not the same as killing something whether I'd gotten. The bear why shot to death whether I'd done. He was yet I don't that he it was not euthanized look I feel as badly as you do that the bears gone. But let's get realistic. Because the second opposing is more is more in him and in the reasonable zone. If this bear attacked a human being hurt kill them but people still have the same reaction the answer is no the public would want to. I'll hunt down and killed a bear and that's exactly right. That's exactly right in injured bear. If that bear heads. Had you know been left to Roman injured anybody. We would have held the project into that let's go to Scott in Cheektowaga struck on WB yen. And a Scott thanks for calling what do you think that the police have the right thing and but what about the memorial to the bears that little over the top. And you know hopefully you know Archie who got understandably not large but yeah. There's do courtroom don't realize about despair. There's really territorial I don't believe we have a big bear population in north North Carolina Cheektowaga and worse. Vital oil I don't believe there's there was either leading off the mother. All right still lost the mothers are bigger barrier pushed it out Google where you actually air so value you know go up there are not members. People forget amnesty period they're afraid. They'll have to be wounded they are afraid to go and attack. I've seen enough specials all while alive to know that if people think dangerous chances around bears I don't know maybe they just saw. A Disney card to the with a bear talking to somebody or something like Abbott. They can tear you apart and there you've you've ever seen anybody injured and a bear attack if it's pretty brutal. Obama I'm gonna ever gonna pitch shot to repay. I mean it can't screw the the big picture. Do you want to get they walked up I could be I don't know that latitude and it's. It's going off on you each week I doubt you or did you. There's been people die from little Debbie didn't. Coming up on top of the bitter dispute is that there aren't lower. I've seen all kinds of things our on line with the actual video of of people being attacked and whatever society and are on the same page we we may love while alive but we've got to protect people first thank you people have to comforts. As you know I saw not that long ago. I was so shocked and surprised have you seen the video of a giraffe. Attacking and other giraffe. All god. It is so slammed their heads and they act I they take their necks and they swing them around. And that they are extremely. Dangerous and don't argue until I saw a video of that. I was so out of a cuddly cute little Malia I did a I did remote at the opening of the draft policy or buffalo soldier right next play. I'm and their fine them and blow Wednesday when they get angry and stuff and other giraffe. Wildlife is that the key to that murder is wild. Okay there are not domesticated they. Animals. And they are not part of the Disney campaign of hate and let's have lunch with the yogi and boo boo. And there animals in got to realize that. I I appreciate our people's love for animals I don't trust people don't like animals to be honest. People that have no regard for animals people who mistreat animals absolutely in the compromise don't like list. But some things you have to do and they caller was right about dear. People have been very you know injured walking up to a dear that they legally hunted. Thinking that it was gone and it was so. You gotta be careful of ever seen sales videos like when animals attack him things like that you have the pretty frightening they are they really are because we're used to sing them and in a certain area where there. Under control. Professional people are are aware of them that sort of thing. But if you if you look at people visiting national parks and so they get out of their cars to take pictures of the bears stuff. You'll have people get excited or react because the only animal looks cute but if you pass them I'll look an animal. That it is something happens when he's gonna camera guys it's only if it's Q right at it. That's why buzzing beamer will we'll always be highly regarded by our audience. Even if he's worn a goofy salute to a wedding. We'll be back Lamar under Israeli and I Barry O'Neill and I don't care about us spirit of us on this I'm just saying. On the straight and I've third governor of the end.
