Due to the recent bear attack I thought of this:
This Joke is meant for Boy Scouts. Decide for yourself if it is
appropriate for your younger scouts or not.
The National Park Rangers are advising hikers in Glacier National Park
and other Rocky Mountain parks to be alert for bears and take extra
precautions to avoid an encounter.
They advise park visitors to wear little bells on their clothes so
they make noise when hiking. The bell noise allows bears to hear them
coming from a distance and not be startled by a hiker accidentally
sneaking up on them. This might cause a bear to charge.
Visitors should also carry a pepper spray can just in case a bear is
encountered. Spraying the pepper into the air will irritate the bear's
sensitive nose and it will run away.
It is also a good idea to keep an eye out for fresh bear scat so you
have an idea if bears are in the area. People should be able to
recognize the difference between black bear and grizzly bear scat.
Black bear droppings are smaller and often contain berries, leaves,
and possibly bits of fur. Grizzly bear droppings tend to contain small
bells and smell of pepper.
