Bear Diary - Entry 1 - Location Unknown
Two days ago I awoke in a state of sheer panic with a blistering headache. My surroundings were completely unfamiliar, and though I recognized that I was famished, I wanted nothing more than a few laps of water from the river I’m used to waking up near. It is clear to me now that I must be very far from my river.
I’ve spent the last 48 hours consuming enough berries and fishes that my bear hunger is sated. I’ve drank enough river water that my thirst has been slaked. But I’ve not seen anyone other than stupid fishes since I’ve awoken.

I’ve been thinking a lot about Bruce the Moose. 5 days and nights I’ve been completely alone in this strange place, and I could be spending my time thinking about my girlbearfriend Cher or my best bearfriend Pierre…But no. Clumsy Bruce.
I’d kill to hear the familiar distant, but terribly noisy sound of Bruce slipping down the hill again. A sound that previously brought about a visceral reaction of abject irritation (you see, I like to sleep late. Bruce the Moose is a morning Moose. Countless times I’m awoken by his big, dumb, clumsy hooves falling down Big Little Hill. The clopping as he attempts to regain his hoof-ing mid-fall. The stupid, guttural groan when he finally reaches the bottom.), would now warm my bear heart.
There’s no sign of anyone and I’m beginning to worry I may never return home to my river.

Tracks. Fresh tracks. From the looks of them, not very different from my own. Followed them and their scent to a nearby river bank, but the trail went cold.
Bear Diary - Entry 4 - 10 Days In
Still no sign of the source of the tracks.
Happened upon a shredded human-made paper posted on a tree. It was written in English, a language my bearclassmates often chided me for attempting to understand. It reads “Monster Fresh Showdown - Grizzly vs Panda Bear”. Have I been transported here by this “Monster Fresh”? For some sort of contest?
Bear Diary - Final Entry
This will be my final entry. I’ve befriended the curious bear-like “panda”, Amanda, the same one I was sent here to battle to the death. United by a shared new enemy, we’ve dedicated ourselves to bringing the creator of this “showdown” to justice. Amanda predicts we’ll arrive in Seattle in 2 or 3 weeks time, if we hurry.
So long, dearest bear diary.
