“Hank the Tank”, popular for his South Lake Tahoe break-ins and immense love for pizza, may be innocent after all!
Most recently, there was another break-in, but thanks to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, they've determined that Hank was not the culprit, thanks to DNA evidence collected from the scene. What they discovered was there are actually three bears, two males and one female, that are responsible for the property damage throughout South Lake Tahoe. They have concluded that Hank is potentially not responsible for any of the break-ins over the last seven months,
The BEAR League, who has been advocating for Hank, is estatic:
“Hank no longer has a death sentence hanging over him and he is no longer going to have his freedom taken away from him by sending him to a sanctuary. We fully support this decision and are grateful for the investigation into the truth that was taken seriously by the experts within our CA DFW.”
