The Difference between Brown & Black bears & Grizzlies
A forest park ranger holds a training session for travelers and campers how to spot and avoid wild bears as they trek across the hinterlands.
“Brown bears are usually harmless.” the ranger assures.
Black and brown bears avoid contact with humans. They are shy and react to noise so it is strongly suggested everyone attach small bells to your back sacks to warn of your passing by and give the bears time to get out of your way.
Grizzly bears, on the other hand, are extremely dangerous. You won’t see them until they are almost on top of you so, if you see grizzly-bear droppings leave the area immediately.”
“How can you tell which droppings are regular bear and which are grizzly bear droppings?” asks one of the campers.
“That’s the easy part,” replies the ranger. “They’re always full of small bells.”
