The bear shown here is actually Asiatic as is evidenced by the white crescent-shaped marking on its chest. No North American bears sport this distinctive feature. See more »
You know, until a few moments ago I was feeling very superior to a Chinese friend of mine. I forgot that he came by his superstitions honestly; he learned them from the cradle. I can't find any such excuse for you.

Paladin once again goes after the Triple;Headed Demon of Ignorance, Prejudice, and Superstition in this episode, emerging as the Champion of an "invisible minority" too long shunned and misunderstood by Society.
Intrigued by local tales of a horrific Creature lurking on a nearby mountain (encountered mostly by disreputable townsmen whose accounts fail to make much of an impression on the Sheriff, although he none the less arms himself with a protective talisman), Paladin, after meeting a reclusive widower whose shy young daughter has also apparently seen the Creature, decides to investigate --- and promptly falls victim himself to "The Monster of Moon Ridge".
Paladin's (rather one-sided) verbal exchanges with the Creature, and his reactions to with its equally alarming "Keeper", create some very entertaining moments for the viewer! And as this episode concludes, we are poignantly reminded that while all people may be created equal, "Monsters", as a rule, most certainly are not.
