Reading about that beekeeper in Turkey who couldn’t keep the bears out of his hives so he set up a taste test to see which honey the bears preferred. I love the internet.
Link to article about chonky bears who love honey and make up the best focus group possible tbh ...
@franciecashman Post link!
@trash Hang on, I'll grab it.
@trash I put it in the thread, but here it is directly ...
@franciecashman this is adorable and wonderful!

@franciecashman that's like my with donuts or berlin's balls.
@franciecashman this is just the best story!
@GwenfarsGarden I love everything about it!
@franciecashman yep - I'm still smiling :)
@franciecashman Big Boy is my soul mate.
@franciecashman ...and then he...? Stopped making that kind of honey?
I think he's already written off the cost of the honey the bears eat, but was curious about how they were getting in.
There are only 3000 bears in Turkey, and they are protected, Its possible the Environment Ministry compensate him for whatever the bears get (and the video helps him prove that they are eating the more expensive honey, rather than any other cheaper kinds he might also be producing at his farm).
I think he's being compensated if the bears are officially protected. We have the same policy here concerning Far Eastern leopards. If these kitties eat some farmer's kettle, the losses are compensated. That's so that the farmers wouldn't want to kill rare animals to save their kettle.
@franciecashman I love how the beekeeper learned the bears like the most expensive honey the best, and eat it first.
@raye Bears. Just like us. 😂
