    Well fine; There's nothing more tedious than a blase bear.

    There is a razor thin margin between the smartest bear and the dumbest human.

    I’d say more like overlap.

    Or a Venn diagram.

    When I was living in Red Lodge, they upgraded all of the residential trash hoppers to a more bear-resistant design. The downside was that they were also more human-resistant, particularly if you didn't know how they worked (I felt like an idiot after watching the YouTube video, but it did make things a lot easier). So since tourists can't be bothered to read directions, let alone watch YouTube videos, we ended up with trash not always ending up inside the receptacles.

    As far as pronouns, if I'm close enough to find out, I'll defer to whatever the bear prefers.

    I know "it" is offensive.

    This Boo boo wasn't so blase.


    MYSTIC LAKE, Mont. - A camper was reportedly bitten by a bear at Mystic Lake Saturday.

    Gallatin County Sheriff Search and Rescue says Gallatin County Dispatched received a call of the incident.

    The patient was too injured to make the trip down, but found a nearby runner who was able to call 9-1-1 once in cellular service.

    Gallatin County Sheriff Search and Rescue volunteers, Deputies, Paramedics, and LifeFlight Network personnel responded to the area and searched the service road leading to the road.

    LifeFlight searched from the air and located the patient close to Mystic Lake.

    The patient was treated on-site then airlifted to Bozeman Deaconess Hospital.

    “Sheriff Springer would like to remind recreational enthusiasts to always be aware of their surroundings,” Gallatin County Sheriff Search and Rescue said. “There have been several bear sightings in and around Gallatin County. If you are camping, make sure your food is locked away, or in a container which cannot be opened by wildlife.”
    I have been in this State for 30 years and I am willing to admit that I am part of the problem.

    I think I found the inspiration for this cartoon. Even dressed the same...

    Grizzlies actually range down to about 100 miles south of Jackson, and to the big Holes to the West of Driggs. They have been remarkably successful in the last 20 years. They are my biggest cycling fear on the trails, tbh.

    When a hulking grizzly bear and her two cubs wandered into a clearing near a parking lot at Yellowstone National Park on May 10, a woman pulled out her phone to snap photos.
    As she came within three yards of the trio — with just a thigh-high stone barrier between them — the mother bear suddenly charged, a video of the incident captured by another park visitor showed. People behind the woman gasped as she slipped her phone into her sweatshirt pocket and quickly walked away.
    The mother bear stopped after a few steps as her cubs scuttled off toward the nearby tree line. The bear turned and retreated with her offspring.
    Yellowstone National Park officials on Wednesday charged the woman, who is from Carol Stream, Ill., with feeding, touching, teasing, frightening or intentional disturbing wildlife — a federal violation of park policy barring visitors from getting within 100 yards of a bear. She is set to appear for a hearing at the Yellowstone Justice Center in Wyoming on Aug. 26, according to a citation filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Wyoming.
    Grizzly bears have rarely attacked people inside or near Yellowstone National Park, where more than 700 of the animals live. Since Yellowstone opened in 1872, eight people have been killed by bears inside the park, according to the National Park Service. Officials say an average of one nonfatal bear attack happens there each year.

    Witnesses who saw the woman approach the mother bear and her cubs in May warned her to get back inside her car, the Billings Gazette reported. Investigators found that she had posted photos of the bears on her Facebook page with the caption “absolutely floored by the beauty of this place,” the newspaper reported.

    Well, if she was floored, all is forgiven.

    Looks to me like the mama grizzly didn't want to take on a human that large.

    Does the Federal Government hand out community service?
    Because that idiot needs to do a lot of it.
    Or maybe just have to stand at the W Yellowstone entrance with a sign that says "don't approach the wildlife. This is not a petting zoo" for, like, the rest of August.
    No longer stuck.

    Another clueless tourist vs Yellowstone wildlife

    I was in YS back in 1991 in early Sept and there wasn’t another soul to be found during rut.

    I blame boomers.

    Christ, only a few tourons scurried away, and a few more started getting closer. Humans need more culling.
