He was looking for a bag.

"The common cormorant, or shag, lays eggs inside a paper bag.
The reason for this is, no doubt, it helps to keep the lightning out.
But what these unobservant birds have failed to notice, is that herds
Of bears will come, and eating buns, will steal the bags to hold the crumbs

I take 2 things away from this;

1. Cable-ties seem to be the hardware-of-choice for securing your rifle-case to the wing-strut.
2. Never get between a bear and its Cub.

A couple of yards of para cord and you should be up for some impromptu strafe.

Very good, but I don't think we should be passing comment on the bear's sexual orientation.
