Ride Ride Ride Hitchin a Ride

A train pulls up, we jump inside
It's nearly 1 a.m. we're so sly
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Gotta get us home by the morning light

I so do love eatin that grain
I'm really hungry and its pouring from the train
Hitchin' a ride, hitchin' a ride
Gotta get us home to our moma's side

Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride
Ride, ride, ride, hitchin' a ride

The littlest Hobo's are robbing our trains. The cute little buggers, three black bear cubs, are causing a bit of trouble in Yoho National Park.

From CBC...Rocky Mountain bear cubs ride the rails

A trio of hobo bear cubs have been hopping trains in the Rocky Mountains, sparking concern from wildlife officials.

The black bear cubs first climbed onto a Canadian Pacific Railway car on May 31 in Yoho National Park, which is in the Rockies in British Columbia, about 30 kilometres west of Lake Louise, Alta.

Parks Canada wardens suspect the cubs climbed up to feed on grain with their mother, who managed to hop off when the train started moving.

The distressed cubs were stuck until the crew of another train spotted them. The train stopped in Field, B.C., and wardens brought the cubs back to their mother.

But two days later, the cubs boarded a train car for a second time. This time, two residents of Field heard the bears' cries and the trio was once again reunited with mom.

Mother Bear is quoted saying.... "If this is the trouble they are causing now as infants, what can I expect from them when they reach their teens? Cubs these days!"
