The story, as I imagine reported by Drudge:

Governor Caught in Transspecies Scandal

Refuses to release video

Democrat Vermont governor Peter Shumlin wild, naked video romp with four bears in his secluded home outside the state's capital city, nearly ended in tragedy when one of the animals decided it had had enough of the governor's unwanted advances.

The actual story of hot man-on-bear action, though not as salacious, is pretty darned funny.

Shumlin was awakened by bears raiding his bird feeders and, after yelling at them from his bedroom window, ran out into the back yard butt nekkid and took the food away. (Professional politician on closed course. Do not attempt.)

Of his degree of deshabille, the gov said only, "I sleep like many Vermont boys, without too much clothing at night. I'm not a big pajama person," he said. "The bottom line is: The bears were dressed better than I and they could have done some real damage."

Should you find that a bit TMI, Shumlin will have you know he's been more restrained than he might've, as he has chosen not to release partial video of the events. Thank you, governor.

Details can be found at AP and the Burlington Free Press. No bears were harmed in the making of this diary.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
