Makes me want to go and get mauled.

To bad they didn't carry the proper bear defense tools.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

The only bear spray i recommend is 458 caliber in the 350-510 grain range. Douse bear repeatedly with lead covered by coppered at 2100 fps. Works everytime its tried.

If the bears had been, at the very least, fenced off from the camping areas & hiking trails & crossings, this could have been prevented. If people are running into the bears in that area, the bears must be over-populated; perhaps a cull hunt is needed.

LOL. I don't think a fence will keep out many bears. Especially if there is food on the other side. A fence might keep out bears that don't want to bother with a fence...

I always wondered about your aversion to bears? What's up with that? Why bears? Just curious.

Couple of years ago they (NOLS) lost a few kids down a crevasse in a glacier up here. I'm thinking that might NOT be the best place to send your teen for an outdoor education. Might be they should hire a local to walk them around.

Pepper spray will only make you tastier.

.50 caliber medicine might calm her down though.
