Some things are better in pairs. Shoes. Mittens. Cookies.
Bears? Yikes! One thing worse than looking out your window and seeing a bear — seeing a pair.
However, a few bears are good to see in pairs. The duo which appears on the Missouri State Seal — and state flag — come to mind. They also are the inspiration for this charming park bench.
Don’t dispair if the pair of bears is a work of art.
However — if they are wearing fur and lumbering toward you on all fours — exit — stage left, right, or center.
