Population of Alamorfordo Has
& Chase After Bear Presented
to Park by Judge Mann.
Alamogordo, N. M., Nov. 3.
Mann's big cinnamon hoar, captu
red by that jurist and a party of
friends in the wilds of Lincoln
county and presented to Alamogor
do in perpetuity, got out of the
park where it is kept, the other
day, and there was immediately
something doing. The bear has
been kept in a cage on the little
island in the park, where it has
been one of the sights of the town.
In some way the bear got loose and,
plunging into the lake, swam across
to the mainland, immediately
thereafter, taking a fast hike to a
big pile of telegraph poles across
the track, into the recesses of which
Bruin retreated, growling. About
three hundred people turned out
to see the bear recaptured. Mr.
Crippen, the park keeper, after con
siderable strategy, finally succeed
ed in dropping a lasso over the
bear's head from the top of the pile
of poles, and aided by the populace
dragged the bear back to the park.
The bear is a big one and had taken
a notion to be disagreeable, the
mortality might have been appall
ing. As it was, however, he sub
mitted to being reincarcerated with
a good grace and is again in the
park as a standing monument of
the prowess of the New Mexico
