There is only one time when I've been scared completely shiatless and sure I was about to die: When a black bear accustomed to human food / humans with a cub decided to raid our camp in the middle of the night.  We had no idea there was a cub and yelled from the tent to scare the adult off - the cub ran off and came back shortly, sat outside of the tent (and right next to my head) bobbing its head trying to figure out what food was alive in the tent.  We pulled our backpacks over the top of us and didnt move until the bears had been gone for 30 minutes.  fark that.

Still sucks that bears get habituated.  Its definitely the fault of people and piss poor managers that wont trap and remove bears as soon as they start raiding camps.

If a best comes close to your camp, stand up as talk as you can, raise your arms above your head, and shout 'HEY BEAR' until it deems you too dangerous to confront.

And if it kills you anyway, your buddies will tell that story for years.

Dude, they were "BLACK" bears

Maybe if they were Polar bears they would just gave them a fine or a slap on the wrist/paws.

I feel the same way.  The 'authorities' have NO way of knowing which bears were involved in the attack.  It's always kill them all.  Fark you people.

Closest i've ever been to a bear in the wild was driving on a tiny back road in Arkansas. Came around a corner and maybe 200 feet ahead of me was a bear just sitting in the middle of the road, chillin. when it saw me, it took off into the woods, thankfully.If they're getting to used to us, is it the bear that needs to be put down, or the humans insisting on spreading even further into the bear's habitat?

If bulls and cattle prods are any indication... it will both stun the bear AND piss it off.

FTA: "All five bears were 'highly habituated'"
How are the FF&W officers supposed to know which one did it? Get them to stand in a lineup? Interrogate them? Check the activity record on their cellphones to see where they were on the day in question? Bribe their buddies to see who rats them out?

The only -real- solution to this I can think of is to hire some maniac to patrol around the area, whose job is to run after bears and whack them with a hockey stick to keep them rightfully terrified of batshiat insane humans.

Wow, I was going to say overkill, but then I saw 'upscale community.' We've got to keep our 1%'ers safe.

That being said, black bears aren't really something to worry about. I'm from Tucker County West Virginia and we have an incredibly dense bear population. I've seen hundreds in the wild and even those habituated to humans don't really care about you. They only interact with threats and food and usually they see people as neither. I camp without a tent frequently in backwoods areas and yep, you'll wake up and they'll be rummaging through your stuff and you kick yourself for not washing your hands better and having scent on your things or having dropped food in the dark and not cleaned it up, but honestly I've never had a negative encounter with a bear and I don't know anyone that has. 95% of your encounters are walking through the woods, you see them, they have their nose down rummaging for food and they don't even look at you. 5% are them are them going through your camp looking for trash that hopefully you put up out of the way. That said, obviously they do sometimes attack people, but lightning strikes people too, it's no reason to walk around staring up all the time. For the most part, don't go bothering them and they won't bother you. My guess is that the woman popped around the corner five feet from the bear, it's threat alarm went off and it did what animals are wont to do when they feel overly threatened. It certainly sucks for the lady, but she's one of those crazy exceptions and not the rule.

They also don't know which blacks commit crimes.  Are you saying that cops shouldn't arrest all the blacks?

A bear in a community. Are they sure it's not just fat dog?

FTA:  Frana, 45, said the bear had her head in its mouth and dragged her about 4 feet toward a wooded area.

Is 4 feet really enough to determine which direction and/or intent behind said dragging?

It could work in theory but it would have a very difficult time getting through the fur to create the electrical pathway needed. They're also a fire once and then reload weapon with a range of 15 to 35 feet, depending on if it's the civilian or military/police. That doesn't seem like a recipe for success with a bear :)

You could build a variant for animals but you'd probably be better off with pepper spray... unless you just really want to piss off PETA.
