From the back cover -
THIS TRUE STORY of the antics of a hot-tub-hopping bear who wanders out of the forrest and into people's hearts shows how public opinion and public action can influence a community.
From the cover flap -
DURING THE SUMMER of 1994, a cinnamon-colored bear became a frequent vistor to the town of Monrovia at the edge of the mountains northeast of Los Angles. Nicknamed Samson by the residents in whose hot tubs he loved to soak, he earned a reputation as an avocado-loving voyeur who ambled throught backyards and peered into picture windows. Samson eventually got into trouble with the law for raiding garbage cans and destroying fruit trees, and was captured and scheduled to be put to sleep the very next day. The bear became an overnight celebrity after a pair of local residents released to the media their home video of Samson lounging in their pool and hot tub. The public responded to the old bear's plight. This is a true story of how Smason was saved.
