Anyone watching The Colbert Report last night saw Sen. Claire McCaskill give the show's host a Missouri flag. The flag, if you haven't seen one lately, features in its crest the verything Stephen Colbert hates: bears. McCaskill then proceeded to promise that there were no bears in Missouri.
LIES! According to the Missouri Department of Conservation, there are black bears in Missouri. The official bear Web site (yes, there is, in fact, an official bear Web site) also confirms that numerous black bear sitings in southwest Missouri have been recorded within the last five years, proving that McCaskill is completely wrong and that Steven Colbert should still fear Missouri.
