The National Park Rangers are advising hikers in Glacier National Park and other Rocky Mountain parks to be alert for bears and take extra precautions to avoid an encounter. They advise park visitors to wear little bells on their clothes so they make noise when hiking. The bell noise allows bears to hear them coming from a distance and not be startled by a hiker accidentally sneaking up on them. This might cause a bear to charge.
Visitors should also carry a pepper spray can just in case a bear is encountered. Spraying the pepper into the air will irritate the bear's sensitive nose and it will run away. It is also a good idea to keep an eye out for fresh bear scat so you have an idea if bears are in the area. People should be able to recognize the difference between black bear and grizzly bear scat.
Black bear droppings are smaller and often contain berries, leaves, and possibly bits of fur. Grizzly bear droppings tend to contain small bells and smell of pepper.
i may look the part of the dashing swordsman, but i prefer the art of wit to warfare
This conversation reminds me of The Bard's Tale on PS2. The first time you kill a wolf, it drops loot, and the narrator is dumbfounded as to why a wolf is carrying treasures. He says he's going to skip those passages in the future, and you never get anything but wolf pelts from them ever again. :p
Look, for the last time: Kirby has explained it over and over! http://i279.photobucket.com/albums/kk138/Schesparn/11911255317531.gif
having spent my entire 39 years (minus 18 months in a city) living in the country. i can tell you cows and deer dont look at what there eating. often eating loose change farmer drop or hunters drop. the change can be found in cow "pies" as we call them. my grandma lived on a farm and we always looked in cow "pies" for money. they dont stink when there dry. or if you find worms in a cow pie you feed the cows tobacco leaves and it kills the worms. i dont know about other animals. my uncle raised pigs but all they ait was salad type stuff.
