There is a cave-themed roller coaster ride at Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO called 'Fire in the Hole'. In the entrance hangs a painting of a man dressed as a baldknobber. He is wearing a long mask with raccoon tail-shaped ears, a flannel shirt, and coveralls. As their idol, I included this image in my painting with my family. They are pictured here as robbers hiding out in a cave. Unbeknownst to them, a bear also resides there. Just like you cannot stop a robber from robbing a bank, you cannot stop a bear, a force of nature. Trouble begets trouble.
