Should This Gay Bear Be the Scruffy New Face on California's Flag?

California may be short on grizzly bears, but the proud, majestic, cut-off-wearing gay bear is abundant, roaming free from San Francisco to West Hollywood.
And so why not throw one of those handsome hirsute homos on the flag, asks the Center for Biological Diversity in a cheeky new ad designed to #BringBacktheBears to California.
In an effort to repopulate the state with grizzlies, the CBD started a petition addressed to the California Fish and Game Commission:
Grizzly bears once roamed across California for centuries -- from the state's mountains to its valleys and beaches. But decades of persecution drove them off the landscape, and the last grizzly in California was tragically shot in 1924.
Now it's time to bring the bears back.
We're calling on the California Fish and Game Commission to consider options to reintroduce grizzlies in California's Sierra Nevada, where there are 8,000 square miles of prime habitat.
So even while this big hairy bear hug is tempting--
The grizzly is in need of a little more love. Check out the ad below and click here to sign the petition.
