    Slightly humourous, but the information is accurate. The only thing I would add is that you don`t immediately fight a black bear, you try to scare it away first.

    Black bears are pretty weak. I don`t recommend fighting a grizzly though under any circumstances. If you encounter one get the hell outta there any way you can. Playing dead will get you mauled faster than making a break for it. I have seen to many instances of people being mangled while playing dead to take that seriously. But hey back to that black bear thing. just carry something to eat while your out in the wilderness. Black bears happen to love marshmallows so do racoons. Want left alone toss a couple down and walk away while it`s eating them it really is that easy.

    Two most important things to have in bear country: Pepper spray and bells. Have small bells tied to your shoes. As you walk, the bells will ring. A bear can hear you and will usually leave the area. The worst thing to do is surprise a bear.

    You can tell what type of bears are in the area by their spore (poop).

    The black bear spore will be light brown, about the size of a dinner plate and will contain grass and twigs.

    A grizzly bear`s spore is dark in color, smells faintly of pepper and has little bells in it.

    "Also, you can stop invading a bear`s territory altogether."

    Yes, yes! Much better to stay curled up in a fetal ball in you apartment in your giant city, with plenty of people around you at all times to protect you.

    Black bears are like frightened 300lb squirrels and are only interested in eating easy food right then and there, so usually you can chase them away.
    Grizzly bears are about 600lbs, they will usually forage for food, and build a large stockpile before munching. That is unless if they are flat out starving, then you`re screwed.

    @Corpsecrank - Isn`t feeding a bear a terrible idea? Then the bear associates people with food, and it`s less scared of them. When a hiker/camper doesn`t have food, they become food.

    try running... it will probably work cuz frankly ppl are way too much effort to catch for food. But if your a play thing you have basically only one chance. Fist drat that thing in the throat all the way down to your shoulder,your arm will be fubar, but the bear will choke out.

    Hahaha - black bears are weak? You only have to look at one to know that is not the case.

    THe following is all from wiki ~ but credited, so I`ll take it over cc`s bs

    "The worst recorded fatality incident occurred in May 1978, in which a black bear killed three teenagers who were fishing in Algonquin Park in Canada. The majority of attacks happened in national parks, usually near campgrounds, where the bears had become habituated to human contact and food."

    Hmmm... out of curiosity i checked the Norwegian government on Svalbard and their advises for people who encounter polar bears.

    Rule nr. one: Never go unarmed into the terrain. Make sure you know how to use the weapon, and practice shooting before you leave.

    The next rules are about the weapon: don`t use oil, dry- polish the weapon (it will get cold and the oil can make it jam) and keep it clean and so on.

    Then they get to how to camp to avoid bears, stay out of their path etc..

    I have to add though that it says that "polar bears are aggressive and unpredictable by nature, and they may suddenly attack without any warning". They emphasize that "all polar bears are to be treated as a threat."

    Matt Prince: If you even sorta act mad at a Black Bear, it will GTFO!

    Those kids that died likely just flailed around on the ground, not knowing what to do. If one of them had stood up, screaming and punching the bear, they would have survived. Unless of course there were cubs around, obviously.

    Do you remember the video of the hunter climbing into his tree stand, and the black bear never sees him and climbs as well? All the hunter does, was calmly says "Hey. What`r you doin`?" and the bear freaks his poo!

    I have run into multiple black bears in the bush over the years and usually they just look at you with a big goofy look then wonder off. Only one ever made me nervous when he decided to shadow me for about 20 minutes. but i think he just wanted to know what the hell was in his woods.

    This is the sort of advice you get from someone who is sitting at a keyboard when he gives it. Take it from me, if you are in an open space with no weapons and a grizzly comes for you, run. You may as well. If nothing else, it will give you something to do with the last seven seconds of your life.
