Linkfest: Bear Convicted for Honey Theft

The taste of honey was simply too luring for a bear in Macedonia, which repeatedly ransacked a beekeeper's hives. Now the bear has a criminal record after a court found it guilty of theft and criminal damage.

The case was started by the frustrated beekeeper after a year of struggling to protect his beehives. And because the animal had no owner and belonged to a protected species, the court ordered the state to pay for the damage to the beehives - a sum around $3,500.

It's the BPP's Most.
