da bears

So I'm watching this show on Animal Planet, "Human Prey: When Bears Attack." Which is pretty awesome, there's people who have survived bear attacks, and reenactments of their encounters.

The most interesting part is that the bear expert, some professor from some university. He's giving advice on bears, and what to do and what not to do when you're out of doors and in bear country.

But, he's wearing an eye patch... and not because he's a pirate, but because he lost it in a bear attack.

So, how much advice should you take from a bear expert, who got attacked by a bear and lost an eye?

But, later the bear was found and destroyed. Well, an eye for an eye I guess. oh, sorry...

All of this reminds me of a bear sign I read someplace, you know the one...

"We advise the outdoorsman to wear little noisy bells on clothing so as to give advance warning to any bears that might be close by so you don't take them by surprise.

We also advise anyone using the out-of-doors to carry "Peppy Spray" with him in case of an encounter with a bear.

Outdoorsmen should also be on the watch for fresh bear activity, and be able to tell the difference between black bear feces and grizzly bear feces. Black bear feces is smaller and contains lots of berries and squirrel fur. Grizzly bear feces has bells in it and smells like pepper."
