In government, EVERY day is April Fool's Day!

Alaskan Fish & Game officials are playing God's Hairdresser.

SOLDOTNA, Alaska, May 20 (UPI) -- Officials from Alaska's Department of
Fish and Game are set to give bears a chance to change their image through the
use of various hair dyes.

The Anchorage Daily News said Sunday that by giving each species of bear in
the region different colored fur, wildlife officials effectively will be
labeling the animals.

I can only hope no federal funds are used for this little foray into Fish & Game Eye For The Straight Bear.

But here's the worst part. The following was apparently said with a straight face:

Officials told the newspaper they did not want to embarrass the animals, but felt the hair-dying was necessary to ensure the bears' safety.

Read that again, just to make sure it really says what it says. They don't want to embarrass the bears.

It's not April 1. I already checked.
