"The reason why we're having bear attacks now is because we have vacationers out in the areas where bears live."

Bear attacks on people happen most often when bears and people are in the same place, according to bear biologist Ric Romero.

It is all their own fault they got mauled. They should have handed over the pic-a-nic basket.

Major bear problem in our area. Our neighbor had her car window knocked out because she left half a sandwich in the passenger seat. I also have an uncle who walked into his kitchen to find a bear drinking from the kitchen sink tap. While slowly backing away, the bear seemed to charge him, but really it was aiming for a window. It crashed through the second story window, dropped 10 feet, and ran like hell.

CNN, what about a story on the increased Bear Patrol tax?

I have a few bear stories from my time in Alaska. For instance, a bear tried break into a house in my neighborhood. The guy was home and shot the bear dead. Also, I went on a bear watch. It was cool seeing one or two in the wild, about 100 yards away. But it got a bit scary when more and more started arriving to the portion of the river we were at. It's not cool when a baby bear thinks you're totally interesting and tries to get a closer look

Also, I'm a Chicago Bears fan.

This lady on Facebook told me I was a racist because I said white people should stop going where the bears are.

I challenged her to find me a story of any black person mauled by a bear.

Shot by the cops, yes. Mauled by bears, no. That was the end of the conversation.

Seriously, white people, stop going where the bears are. Then they will not eat you.

I actually heard someone on GMA this morning say that she tried to pet the bear to make it like her...

I thought I was still asleep and dreaming....

Bears aren't big warm fuzzy friendly animals...  To a bear, you are an enchilada...

I was always told that if you skritch them behind the ears they will roll onto their back so you can rub their belly...

/ Had a bear prowl around the house last night.

Saw a couple of black bears in Estes Park near downtown a few weeks ago.  Really cool seeing them eating and playing and having fun, not as cool seeing morons getting out of their cars and walking closer to them to "get a better look."

I guess people assume that because there are more bears showing up in towns, subdivisions, and closer to humans, that they are domesticated.  All of those forest service warnings don't bean anything to them.

I grew up out in the boonies.  We were expected to have enough sense to stay away from the bears.

//told a woman she was an idiot, for telling her kid to run over to a bear cub and pet it so she could get a picture.  Farkin tourists....

///Where there's a bear cub looking cute and sweet, there is a mama bear that will tear something's head off for screwing around with her cub....

I was concerned about bear attacks while out hiking, so I went into the local outdoors store to get a big can of pepper spray.  While I was checking out the clerk asked me if I wanted some bear bells as well. So I bought little bells and a big can of bear spray.  I asked the clerk how you could tell if there were any bears around, she said "look around for any bear droppings". I asked what bear droppings look like and she said "It depends on what kind of bear it is....Black bears are smaller and harmless, their droppings are small and full of seeds and berries." I asked what the other kind of bear is, she said "The other kind of bear is the brown bear or grizzly bear, they are larger than black bears, their droppings are large, smell spicy and contain little bells."

Seven bear attacks....So, bears repeating?

I am fairly sure the news report got their advice backward.  The news said play dead with the grizzly, and fight back with the black bear.  I believe the correct answer is  play dead with the black bear; do whatever you can to survive with the grizzly because it will eat you like an enchilada if you just lay there.

/I also don't like the term "play dead."  If the bear is within 10 feet of you (maybe farther), it can smell you breathing.  If you thought your GermanShepard had a good nose, look twice at a bear's nose.

No, it is fight a black bear and pray to God while laying as motionless as possible when a Grizzly attacks.

I'd love to get more info on each attack. I wonder how many of these people either didn't follow proper bear safety protocols?

Woo hoo. We're going camping up there this weekend. Bells and pepper spray for everyone.
