I seen this Bear video on Facebook this morning, and it just reinforces how stupid people can be sometimes..Hey I am not saying I have always done the smartest things..I have my stupid moments too.
But trying to walk up and like pet a grizzly bear, is a pretty dumb ass move!
Bears And Stupid People.
I am a hunter and have have ran into bears in the woods many times, and I get as far away, as fast as possible from them. When you have a bear stand up on all fours right in front of you, all snarling and growling, yea its time to move, and move fast!
Bears are an animal that should never be messed with in anyway, and you should never attempt to feed them, let alone pet them, your just asking for trouble if you do. Actually your just asking to get killed!
Let them look all cute and stuff when your at the zoo, or scoping them with binoculars from a couple football fields away..
This bear video be it entertaining, makes me just shake my head, I do not know about you, but I value my life just a bit more than the dumb people in this video.
Here are some Bear safety tips so you do not get killed while in the outdoors..I’m posting these tips below, like seriously, because a lady in our area just got mauled to death by a black bear.
Bear Safety Guidelines To Follow Unless You Want To Die While Camping.
It is very important to NEVER ever feed bears. Bears can quickly learn to associate people with food and easily become habituated to human food. Bears will return to a food source over and over. A bear that loses its fear of humans is a dangerous animal.
Follow these simple guidelines when camping to not get killed:
1. Keep a clean camp. All food, toothpaste, soda and juices, and other bear attractants should be secured away from tents.
2. Use food lockers when available or follow the campground’s food storage recommendations and guidelines for properly storing food while in the area.
3. Use recycling and trash bins provided at campgrounds frequently instead of storing garbage at your campsite.
4. Keep your pets leashed and secure their food between meals. While away from camp, secure food and garbage.
5. Never throw full beer cans at bears, make sure and drink the beer first.. 🙂 Just kidding, but seriously, do not waste your beer..
Bear Safety Guidelines To Follow Unless You Want To Die While Hiking.
While hiking, you should always watch ahead for bears or bear signs. In their natural habitats, bears prefer to avoid humans but will react aggressively when startled or protecting cubs. Human confrontations with bears are usually the result of a sudden encounter with a bear protecting its space, cubs or food caches.
Use these tips when hiking in bear inhabited areas to not get killed:
1. Avoid surprising bears by making noise, as bears will avoid you if they can hear or smell you.
2. Always give a bear space. Never approach, crowd, pursue or displace a bear you see ahead on the trail.
3. Never get between a mother and her cub even if the cub appears to be alone or sick.
4. Leave pets at home or keep them leashed. Loose dogs can startle bears and cause them to chase the dogs back to their owners.
If you have any questions or comments about not getting killed by bears, don’t hesitate to post them in the comments section below or just say hello. 🙂 I would love to hear from you!
Have a beautiful day, and remember to always be kind and good to others.
