The North Adams Police Department was so taken aback by one resident's actions, they fired off this sassy post on Facebook.

You have to do something pretty dumb to be sassed like that in an official statement from the police. There's no word on who this "hatchet man" is who went "all Davy Crockett" and chased a bear through the woods of North Adams, Massachusetts, and that's probably for the best. It's embarrassing enough to see the NAPD's post go viral (5,000 likes as I write this) without being named as well. I just hope that the anonymous hatchet man takes this opportunity to change his ways, get his drinking under control, sharpen his hatchet, and leave the bears alone.
