Yeah... Definitely good books and by no means am I a bear expert, but those analogies don't always hold true. An example is a black bear mother "defending" her cubs. I'd read that is one of the cases where you don't fight back.

Wow! I hadn't heard that one yet. That's amazing!

I've noticed in the past number of years that Whistler has become alot more bear aware w.r.t. the storage of waste.

That's a pretty hefty fine and really sends a message out. I really wonder how far that message goes though. I remember a few years back I was at Whistler and there were a number of tourists getting really close to a bear taking pictures and throwing food. I couldn't believe my eyes.

As an aside, I've been reading the book "Valley of the Grizzlies" which I am finding quite interesting. One of the notable things is that other animals end up feeding grizzlies as well. Probably the most amusing is the end of summer when they raid the squirrels pine cone collections and chow down.

Here's a shot of one now with a bear banger. Leave my pinecones alone! Silly squirrel, you're supposed to aim the banger in the air not at the bear.
