This morning in Flakes news we heard a story about a Hutterite Colony here in Montana that has been chasing down bears, exhausting them to death! How bizarre is that?Now to make it even weirder, they were protected bears!  Okay, so you chased down the protected bears and yet the Hutterite colony pleads not guilty when there are bears buried right on the property?  Hmmm this just doesn’t make sense to us!

Minister Leonard Kleinsasser and five other members entered their not guilty pleas yesterday in federal court in Great Falls. Court documents say the colony did not report the deaths because they were afraid. Really? But they weren’t afraid of chasing down a grizzly bear and being eaten?

U.S. Magistrate Judge Keith Strong set an October 3 trial date. Defense attorney Mac Smith declined to comment after the hearing.

What do you think about this? Is this the real story?
