Since many of us go out in the wilderness to view. And spring is right around the corner. I thought you all would like to know about an information bulletin issued through cooperation between the USFS and the Canadian Authorities. It is an information bulletin on bear attacks. We've been getting too many. So they have suggested we wear little bells to let the bears know we're coming. Also to take pepper spray. Now the black bears are more docile than the grizzlies. It is a good idea to know which bear, if any is in your area. The easiest way to tell this is through the waste they leave. The black bears usually have little berries, insects, and such in their waste. The grizzly waste has little bells, and smells of pepper. " [end] Clay ---------------------------------------- Dr. P.
