Griffith Park Bear's Outfitter Revealed! (But Not Unmasked)

NPR's "All Things Considered" has managed to identify, but not unmask, the woman behind the Griffith Park Bear's recent wardrobe changes. The culprit is Captain Hook, a local writer, actress, and yarn bomber who was raised on a commune in the seventies (her accomplices include seamstress Vanessa XKiller). In a video, the Captains says "I want it to look like this bear has a grandma that just won't stop making it ridiculous clothes that it has to wear."
