Storino from Joe’s Dairy Bar and Grill and in this video, we’re discussing how a Canadian

so that YOU can learn how to save BIG at Joe’s AND get the inside scoop on some of the hottest
ice cream and designer food trends in the industry too! Now, a media circus has recently erupted starring…what
else? A bear! But not just any old bear in the woods! A bear that was taken out for ice cream at
a drive-through by Canadian zoo employees, looking to make a viral moment for themselves. Well…it went viral all right, but they’re
sure sorry now! And wait until you find out what we think
about this story here at Joe’s Dairy Bar and Grill. Oh boy! But before I dive in, if you’re looking

of the world. Out in the wild, where they came from. So why was this bear taken out for take-out? I mean, just look at him! A video made its way to the Internet showing
a one-year-old captive Kodiak bear named Berkeley, property of Discovery Wildlife Park in Innisfail,
Alberta, Canada. The video shows what appears to be Berkeley,
out for a drive…in a pickup truck…at a drive-through…getting ice cream…in early
2018. Huh? In fact, take another look at this photo. The owner of the ice cream establishment is
actually hand-feeding…a wild bear…ice cream…. You know, because that seemed wise. Even a little bitty baby bear isn’t the
type of critter that we should be hand-feeding, people. Am I right? But what do we here at Joe’s Dairy Bar and
Grill know, anyway? I mean, we’re an ice cream stand since 1960,
that’s served three generations of customers, that ALSO, in recent years, has been featured
in places like ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox News, Telemundo and more. We’ve won awards and/or Best Overall in
competitions run by 101.5 WPDH, the Home of Rock and Roll, one of the largest radio stations
in the region of New York State where we’re located… …and we’ve been named Best Ice Cream in
regional publications like The Hudson Valley Magazine. So we know a lot about ice cream, of course. But when it comes to hand-feeding wild bears
ice cream? Uh, I don’t know too much about that, but
I’m thinking anyone with a keen grasp of the obvious would possess enough common sense
not to haul around a wild bear in a pickup truck…or take it out in public that way…to
an ice cream stand…and have the owner of said ice cream stand hand-feed the brawny
beast. How that’s safe for anyone I have absolutely
no clue. Let us know in the comments below what you
think. So it should come as no surprise that following
an investigation of this viral video, officials are seeking to bring zoo owners Doug Bos and
Debbie Rowland to justice, via Section 12(3) of the Canadian province’s Wildlife Act. Oh, and get this! The owners have actually taken the bear off
zoo property before, to hang out at other places, on other occasions in 2017. What the heck? So the Canadian zoo officials have at least
shown signs of smartening up by publicly declaring that they made a mistake—surprise—and
that they plan to plead guilty on May 28, 2018 when they make their court appearance
on the matter. I’m an attorney since 1998…I’ve done
work in the past with Canadian attorneys on some matters going back as late as 2015…so
let me tell you…I’m good but even I don’t see how a defense would have been possible
for these zoo officials under their circumstances. #Duh. Oh, and here’s the way Doug Bos thinks he’s
saving face. He told a Canadian news channel, “What we
got charged for under the act was that we failed to notify [officials] that we were
going to do those things. We were busy. We made a mistake, and we didn’t email them
and tell them.” Oh, OK. You’re claiming you’re in trouble because
of a clerical error, Doug? Sure. Look, we here at Joe’s Dairy Bar and Grill
understand that everyone wants to make their mark on the Internet. We’d all like a viral video to help us along. Maybe the zoo needed some press to beef up
attendance and keep their business profitable. As fellow business owners, we get the idea
of needing to be profitable so that you can keep doing what you love. But when you try to blame things on a clerical
error like…. Oh come on! The food for thought here, and DON’T pardon
the pun, is that there is a fine line between business and risky business. I don’t care if the bear was kept on a chain
or if the zoo staff brought the bear to the drive-through before the joint was open for
business for that day. There are limits. But if you disagree, say so down below. Now you know the stance we here at Joe’s
Dairy Bar and Grill take in terms of non-sublime ursine pandering for popularity. But do YOU have a way to save big once you
