Since this is not bear season in Alaska, former Governor, and Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, took a group of fellow politicians on a trip through the wilderness Sunday.
Everything went well as she led them through some beautiful scenery and took a lot of photographs, even of a couple of bears according to a source.
"On the trip, all of us had guns just in case. It's legal to shoot a bear in self-defense, even out of season. But we steered clear of bear and moose as much as possible."
The source then stated that they did come upon a cave in the side of a large hill or small mountain and Sarah Palin told everyone that it was a bear's den.
"She had us to slip inside quietly and there was a bear, apparently in a deep sleep. It was so cute until this idiot pulled out his camera."
According to the source, Palin made a grab for the camera and when she did, a flash went off in the semi-darkness.
"RUN!" she yelled and we ran like son of a..well, we ran!"
"No one was hurt but Ms. Palin where the bear's claws had raked her twice and her left pants leg ragged and her leg cut but not very deep."
"That was when a couple of park rangers came up and arrested her for awakening the bear. That's illegal in Alaska...but you can shoot them...in self defense."
Palin was treated, paid a fine and used some pretty colorful language to describe the politician who had the camera, according to his wife who was also on the tour.
"George was the one that should have been fined", stated one Laura Bush.
