SKOPJE, March 13 (Reuters) - A Macedonian court convicted a bear of theft and damage for stealing honey from a beekeeper who fought off the attacks with thumping "turbo-folk" music.
The beekeeper, Mr Zoran Kiseloski, tried to frighten away the bear by playing music by turbo-folk star Ceca. This was initially successful, although it is unclear whether the bear was more frightened by the music, or by Ceca's husband, the notorious war criminal Arkan. However, when the generator powering the music ran down, the bear came back and attacked Mr Kiseloski's beehives, causing 140,000 denars worth of damage.
The current whereabouts of the bear are unknown.
