Watch For Bears Joke
This Joke is meant for Scouts BSA.
The National Park Rangers are advising hikers in Glacier National Park and other Rocky Mountain parks to be alert for bears and take extra precautions to avoid an encounter.
They advise park visitors to wear little bells on their clothes so they make noise when hiking. The bell noise allows bears to hear them coming from a distance and not be startled by a hiker accidentally sneaking up on them. This might cause a bear to charge.
Visitors should also carry a pepper spray can just in case a bear is encountered. Spraying the pepper into the air will irritate the bear's sensitive nose and it will run away.
It is also a good idea to keep an eye out for fresh bear scat so you have an idea if bears are in the area. People should be able to recognize the difference between black bear and grizzly bear scat.
Black bear droppings are smaller and often contain berries, leaves, and possibly bits of fur. Grizzly bear droppings tend to contain small bells and smell of pepper.

Funee! I couldn't quite remember the joke. However, my wife and I went for a hike a few years ago in Yellowstone NP and found the pepper spray very reassuring. I found a bear print twice the size of my own boot print. Here in Australia we have the most venomous snakes in the world but they won't stalk and deliberately try to kill you unlike your bears and cougars. The sharks and crocodiles here are a different story!!! Oh, and don't believe Steve Irwin's rants. Look what happened to him!! He was a complete fool according to us real biologists. He was about to be charged for illegally keeping endangered snakes but then he died because he was annoying a deadly sting-ray. Love your site, cool.Mar 28, 2016 - Spurwing Plover
