Grizzly bears are big, scary animals.

(Several times they've come within a couple feet of us at night as we were peacefully sleeping in the tent. Those huge prints give you something to think about the next morning.)

Same thought occurred to me. I was surprised when it turned out that the driver was not drunk at that time of the morning.

These incidents are going to increase everywhere with urban sprawl. Its such a hard thing to balance.

But BBQed bear is really really good!
