We do not like to think we had a hand in the premature or accidental death of one.
We want to believe that we have had no part in a bear’s untimely death, especially since it would bother us to no end if we knew that we did.
Yet, we often choose to ignore the telltale signs that we very well may have had a hand in it.
Increase your bear awareness, and pass it on to friends and family who may be visiting the area and need some awareness too!
(The bear in the pic had to be killed by a local law enforcement officer. So who killed the bear really…the officer or the hiker who left food in his car at the trailhead?)
