Watch for those bells!

ALERT! Please note the following public service announcement: In Alaska, tourists are warned to wear tiny bells on their clothing when hiking in bear country. The bells warn away MOST bears. Tourists are also cautioned to watch the ground on the trail, paying particular attention to bear droppings to be alert for the presence of grizzly bears. One can tell a grizzly dropping because it has tiny bells in it.

You missed a bit, Joe & Annette.


"WARNING


Due to the frequency of human-bear encounters, the B.C. Fish and Wildlife Branch is advising hikers, hunters, fishermen and any persons that use the out-of-doors in a recreational or work related function to take extra precautions while in the field.


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


We also advise anyone using the out-of-doors to carry "Pepper 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.

Right...little bells.
I think that would be a dinner bell, letting the bears know that dinner is served.
