Kudos to the Ranger. I hope he never has to evac my sorry butt from a trail deep in the tall and uncut, but it's good to know there are people like that out there just in case. One wrong step and things can get very bad very quickly up there. And I'm too old and broke-down to try to carry somebody else out, too.
“Mostly if you’re moving and reasonably noisy you’re fine.”
Sorry, but you could be dead wrong, as was the cute female who was attacked from behind by a predator in a similar park in Canada.
Predators lost their fear of man when we lost our constitutional right to defend our life under the Endangered Species Act, and the numerous regulations of the Armed and Rangerous.
Once beasts lost their fear of man, a fear induced by gunpowder, they reverted to their age old practice of killing and eating humans.
“When gunpowder speaks, beasts obey.”
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.
