Feds Spend $4,832 on 10-Foot Smokey the Bear Costume - And just like Forest Fires, the wearer of the costume dropped his lit cigarette on the costume and it completely burned
The Department of Interior is spending almost $5,000 for a 10-foot blow up Smokey the Bear costume.
The Bureau of Indian Affairs purchased the “Air-inflated WalkAround Smokey Bear” on Friday for a reserve in Lame Deer, Montana.
The agency awarded a contract worth $4,832.76 to the Akana Group, a Native American-owned small business based in Michigan. The company Signs and Shapes International rents the inflatable Smokey the Bear costume for just $350.
