Recall candidate John Cox announces "Meet the Beast" bus tour

From KCRA

Candidate for California governor making Sacramento stop with bear
SACRAMENTO, Calif. —
One of the candidates for California governor plans to kick off a bus tour Tuesday in Sacramento, and it will include an unusual special guest.

Republican John Cox will have a 1,000-pound live bear in an effort to bring attention to what he is calling the "Meet the Beast" bus tour, according to a campaign news release.

Am I the only one picturing him being greeted with "Hail Satan!" banners and being asked if he's claiming to be the Beast, or just have the Mark of the Beast upon his body?

3. I can't even put myself in a frame of reference where it makes sense

Sometimes humans are...worse. Animals don't waste calories on pointless torture

The Beast is not ursine, here

5. Recall Candidate John Cox Is Being Investigated for Bringing a Bear to San Diego

UPDATE: MAY 17, 2021
John Cox’s “Meet the Beast” campaign—which has involved the Republican gubernatorial wannabe stumping alongside a 1,000-pound Kodiac bear named Tag in cities across the state—wasn’t a hit animal rights groups. Now it looks like the stunt may have run afoul of the law.

The San Diego Human Society’s law enforcement division has reportedly opened an investigation into Cox and his beastly antics. A city code relating to unusual animals says, “No person shall offer for sale, give away, bring into or maintain within an area coming within the jurisdiction of this ordinance, any lion, tiger, bear, monkey, wolf, cougar, ocelot, wildcat, skunk.”
Despite the fact that Tag is a “movie bear” born and raised in captivity, and a member of the Screen Actors Guild who lists a role in the 2018 film Action Point on his resume, he’s still a wild animal who had to be penned in with electrically charged wire to cavort for Cox.
