Logic Puzzle #2

Three criminals are in lock up. You need to find Jasper, a key witness to one of your crimes, but in order to locate him you need to know what gang Jasper belongs to. The three gangs in the area are: Bears, Bulldogs and Bats.
The Bears always tell the truth.
The Bulldogs always lie.
The Bats sometimes tell the truth but sometimes lie.
Your three ciminals, Sam, Ted and Joe each belong to a different gang and they have agreed to help you. You ask each of them two questions: What gang do you belong to? What gang does Jasper belong to?
1. Sam says:
I am not a Bear.
Jasper is a Bulldog.
2. Ted says:
I am not a Bulldog.
Jasper is a Bat.
3. Joe says:
I am not a Bat.
Jasper is a Bear.

Okay, I am not doing this "logic puzzle" because my brain is fried from the stocking swap! But I do want you to know I have been talking about your beautiful peaches and pears you canned all week to my friends! You are wonder woman to me Amy!
Have a blessed day today! I know you will.

After 30 min of Spurgeon debate. Jasper is a bear. PHew!!!!!!!!

I concur. Jasper is a bear. That one had me frustrated for a few minutes, but in the end I got it and I didn't even have to call you for hints!

Although really, we know that Jasper is a vampire who eats bears.

This made my brain tired just reading it. I guess I should be more willing to excercise my brain so I don't lose it but I usually just have too many other things on my mind to devote to these kinds of puzzles.

I'm glad to see I'm right again! I didn't check any comments till I figured it out. Yes, Jasper is a bear. But I loved Alicia's second answer!

Ok- I am so going to be brain dead by the time I am 40 - 18 more days.. Seriously- WHAT! I am so retarded at riddles & anything requiring me to think...
I agree with your sister - yeah that's it, she's right!
