The kid was missing for 2-3 days when he wandered off into the woods in sub freezing temps. When finally found he was in pretty good shape and told his rescuers he hung out with a new found friend a bear. I wonder if the kid has a great imagination or if there is any truth to this.

"“This little one was lost in the woods for days in the freezing temperatures, rain, dark nights and wind,” the fundraising campaign reads. “He told us that his best friend the bear was with him to keep him safe. Thanks to God’s mercy he came home to us alive and well.”

I wonder. Would Bigfoot look like a bear to a 3-year-old? Very odd story.

Hmmm, I was raised by Wolves, so I can believe that.

There was a book, from a true story that took place in 1783, "The Bear that Heart Crying".

The child's rescuers actually saw the bear tracks. The bear kept the child from freezing to death, apparently.

The girl later would recall it as a big hairy dog who saved her.

What or who ever it was, God Bless them, for saving this child.

His rescuers heard the story too so maybe there was an animal there. It could have been a dog.

Bears get a bad rap. They're not all about killin' and violence. They just do their bear thing, until people come along and mess with them.

Wouldn't surprise me if Momma Bear helped out Jr.
