Another example of a photo really adding to a story. From True’s 25 June 2006 issue:
Suzanne Giovanetti of West Milford, N.J., was sitting reading when her husband said there was a bear in their back yard. She grabbed her camera and ran out on her deck to find the bear had been treed — by the neighbor’s tabby cat, Jack. After 10–15 minutes the bear finally jumped out of the tree and ran, with Jack in hot pursuit. It escaped by climbing another tree. “He doesn’t want anybody in his yard,” Jack’s owner said. (Newark Star-Ledger) …Yeah, but the bear doesn’t know Jack.
