LAST WEEK’S WINNERS: QUIZ + CAPTION CONTEST

First of all, we have a little caption contest to take care of!

We asked folks to take their best shot at a funny caption on this Valley News photo by Geoff Hansen of a bear stuck in a tree during the Prouty.

A three-year-old female black bear yawns while waiting for several hours about 50 feet above the ground in a large maple tree in the lawn of the SAE fraternity in Hanover, N.H., on July 14, 2018. The day’s activity from the Prouty and campus tours made the bear nervous to come down, said Hanover Deputy Fire Chief Michael Hinsley. (Valley News – Geoff Hansen) Copyright Valley News.

And the winner is …

“In a tree, no one knows you’re a bear.”
