Perhaps anti-terrorist campaigns in rugged South Asia need to begin employing bears to do the dirty work. Reports out of India say two members of the militant group Hizbul Mujahideen were killed by a Himalayan Black Bear in Kashmir after they sought refuge in a mountainous cave. The group was designated a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the U.S. State Department in 2003. Two men, Mohammad Amin (a.k.a. Qaiser) and Bashir Ahmed (a.k.a. Saifullah), were mauled to death in the attack, while two other militants escaped, with one badly injured. The men, armed with AK-47 assault rifles, were surprised by the bear while making pudding.
