Game Notes:

The Bruins enter on a two-game winning streak. Boy oh boy, that's awesome -- isn't it? Now, if you ever find yourself face-to-face with a panther, here's what you should do, as told by The Florida Panther Society:

Panthers do not like coming in contact with humans. It goes against all their natural instincts, but sometimes by mistake their roaming behavior brings about contact with people.

If you see a Florida panther, whether it is on your property or in the wild, stay calm. No Florida panther has ever attacked a human. More than likely, it will run away.

Keep children and pets inside or in your vehicle. If for any reason the panther doesn't run away, show no fear. Make lots of noise. And don't turn your back on it. (Back away from the animal.)

Okay, some really useful information there. Now, you've made it away from the panther safely, but your livestock was compromised in the process -- now what do you do? No worries, the TFPS has you covered:

If you own land near a panther preservation area, these endangered animal may wander into your fields. They are not aware of the boundaries between public and private land. Try to be understanding of how your habitat and the panther's overlap. They pose little threat to your livestock, preferring deer and wild hogs. This does not have to be a crisis. If you are a landowner, don't reach for a gun. Drive the panther off instead.

I'm sorry but I don't agree with any of that. If a panther kills one of my cows or chickens I'm chasing after it on my quad and my totally not illegal flamethrower.


Never Forget:

To wear a helmet when riding a motorcycle. If Hollywood legend Tim Allen can do it, so can you. Not wearing a helmet is responsible for 77% of not-wearing-a-helmet-injuries on hollywood sets across the United States. Be smart out there, WILD HOGS!

"I want to touch your helmet, Tim Allen" "Yes, you may touch my helmet. Thank you."
