Title: Bear Warning
Post by: Dan on October 27, 2006, 02:30:20 PM

The Alaskan Department of Fish and Game, recently issued this bulletin:

In light of the rising frequency of human/grizzly bear conflicts, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game is advising hikers, hunters, and fishermen to take extra precautions and keep alert for bears while in the field.

?We advise outdoorsman to wear noisy little bells on their clothing so as not to startle bears that aren?t expecting them.? We also advise outdoorsman to carry pepper spray with them in case of an encounter with a bear.?

It is also a good idea to watch out for fresh signs of bear activity.? Outdoorsman should recognize the difference between black bear and grizzly bear manure:?

Black bear manure is smaller and contains lots of berries and squirrel fur.?
Grizzly bear manure has little bells in it and smells like pepper.
