In an all too familiar scene, local game wardens finally arrested Winnie the Pooh after the bear's murderous rampage left one dead, countless injured, and a forest in disarray. A self-described "lover of honey," he became incensed when local resident Mr. Yogi Bear, a retired park bear and notorious kleptomaniac, used his superior intellect to trick Mr. Pooh into trapping his head in a honey jar while stealing his picnic basket. Incensed, the pooh bear turned his 3' frame upon Mr. Yogi, leaving only a crimson stain on a nearby tree stump. He then went on a rage-fueled dash through the forest, striking small pigs with rocks and stealing the tail from a local mule. Rangers finally subdued the bear with the assistance of boyhood friend Christopher Robin, who distracted him long enough for park sharpshooters to tranquilize the bear.
