Bears and camp grounds

Bears should be in the woods. Bears are not pets. Bears, even 'little' black ones, can eat you. It is always prudent to expect predators to look at you as food.

It is too bad that people are not careful about leaving a trail of trash where ever they go.... The rule of thumb is; people go as far into the woods as a man can carry a cooler of beer... (This is a funny image. And oddly enough holds true for parks and forests near cities.... I did not make this up on my own... this is from someone who works in the Forrest and has observed many people in the woods...). The unfortunate thing about many forests is that people leave tons of trash in areas where people like to go... which encourages hungry bears to visit, too. It is kind of like people set traps for themselves.
