The Great Bear Hunt took a new and scary turn in Kapiti yesterday.
Michael (14 tomorrow) has been cared for by Miss Zara Tristram Sesay for the past year.
But yesterday the Lock Down got to Michael and he decided to take the driver’s seat and make a break for it.
His grandfather was heard to mutter: ‘I don’t know about the kids, but he scares the hell out of me.’
Animal control at the KCDC has been informed.
