Please drop this item in rural OR Premium Member Only caches.  Do not place it in an urban cache or abandon it at a caching event.  Transport the bug in the original plastic bag for as long as the bag lasts; the bag keeps the trackable clean and prevents tangling with other items.  Otherwise, take the travel bug anywhere you wish.  No permission is needed to leave the U.S.

Photos in the travel bug logs are appreciated.  I will be re-post them here, where they can be seen by other cachers.

About This Item

brer_fox_and_brer_bear_by_the_fifth_dementia-d3akv

This “Bear” series of travel bugs are each named for fictional bears of children’s literature, comic books, cartoons, mythology and animated shorts or features.

Br'er Fox and Br'er Bear (also spelled Brer Fox and Brer Bear) are fictional characters from the Uncle Remus folktales adapted and compiled by Joel Chandler Harris.  Both are shown in the figure.  Br’er is a contraction of Brother.  Uncle Remus is a collection of animal stories, songs, and oral folklore, collected from Southern United States African-Americans.  Many of the stories have a moral, much like those of Aesop's Fables. Uncle Remus is a kindly old former slave who serves as a storytelling device, passing on the folktales to children gathered around him.  My mother read the book to me and my sisters.  In the animated sequences of the 1946 Walt Disney-produced film Song of the South, Brer Fox is the primary villain (depicted as comically devious and cruel), while Brer Bear is his dim-witted sidekick.  The two are constantly hunting, but getting outwitted by, Br’er Rabbit.  Br’er Bear is usually carrying a club with which he is going to knock someone’s head off.  The characters also appeared in comic strip form.
