I use a cheap WiFi laser printer with cheaper 3rd party toner cartridges

I stopped using an inkjet printer a couple of years ago because I don't think the prints looked good and the cartridges needed replacing frequently. And I rarely needed color prints anyway. I bought the Brother HL-L2340DW Compact Laser Printer for $(removed) and have never regretted it. Wireless setup was a breeze. The prints are crisp. It also prints on both sides of a sheet of paper. Best of all, I buy toner cartridges that cost only $(removed) for a 2-pack, and each cartridge lasts for months.

Lauren Shutt emailed to let me know that the above information is incorrect:

Hi Mark, I wanted to contact you about the photo of a woman holding a grizzly paw.

The bear is not sedated for tagging, it was shot and killed by my brother, Charlie Shutt, outside of Anchorage. The woman you see holding the paw, Brandi Houser, is a friend of the family who was with him when the bear was killed. She posted the photo to her Facebook page, someone copied it onto Reddit, and it's been making the rounds ever since.

She also suppled additional photos:
