say to cause everyone to say "I suck", why did you post a picture of a cat
whand call it a pushstick, why are you guys so tough on BAD, .......
Which reminds me of a Grizzly story, totally unrelated...
When hiking in the north country it pays to be aware of bears.
Knowing that bears are usually reclusive, hikers will often wear
things like bells and bright-colored clothing to warn of their
One should be aware that there are two main types of bears to be
concerned with; the Brown bear and the Grizzly. Professionals such as
Forest Rangers know that a hiker can usually tell what kind of bear is
inhabiting the area they're hiking by examining any observed scat.
Although both bears are omnivorous, Rangers familiar with both species
know that the Brown bear is more vegetarian in their eating habits and
their scat will be heavily laced with undigested vegetable matter.
The Grizzly's, on the other hand, will be more likely to include large
amounts of little bells and orange cloth.
YA YA YA,..... they all shit in the woods.OK I've come to the conclusion
that you are all a bunch of bastards and i love you all,... sniff * wipes a
tear,.......finally feels like home.

Ackshally, Michael, brown bears are grizzlies. The other kind of bear
is the American Black Bear. BTW, the other identifying characteristic
of grizzly scat is that it smells like pepper (capsicum, Groggy).
Who really has had a close encounter with a grizzly.

This reminds me of the old bear escape story.
My buddy and I were wandering through the woods when a
huge Grizzly bear came running up at us.
My buddy was a macho fool and thought he could scare
the bear, so when it stood up on its two hind legs,
raised its paws, and growled at him, my buddy did the
same thing toward the bear. It immediately swatted his
head off and turned toward me.
Meanwhile, I had been running down the path. The large
Griz, who moved about 3 times faster than I could, soon
caught up and raised his front paws as he growled in my ear.
I darted off to one side and the bear went skidding on past.
I ran the other way and the bear soon caught up with me
again. As he raised his paws and growled loudly, I darted
off to the other side and the bear went skidding on past.
We repeated this a third time before the bear tired of me,
ate my buddy, and walked off into the forest. And that's
how I lived through all that.
"Why did the bear go skidding on past me every time I ran
sideways?" you ask. Well, he got so close that I could smell
his breath (the berries and fish he had eaten before he got
to think of me as a meal) as he growled at me. That literally
scared the shit out of me...
...and the bear went skidding on past.

There are several varieties of brown bear. The formal Latin for the
brown bear is "Ursus Arctos". Both the "Kodiak" and "Grizzly" are
'forms' of the brown bear, and are "sometimes considered separate
species" -- Ursus Middendorffi, and Ursus Horribilis, respectively.
Calling them separate "breeds" (about as different as a cocker spaniel
and a springer spaniel) wouldn't be far off the mark.
The North American Black Bear (Ursus Americanus) is a separate, albeit
closely related, species. Similar to a coyote vs. a dog.

Not that closely related. Even though coyotes (Canis latrans), wolves
(C. lupus) and dogs (C. familiaris) are considered different species,
they can and do interbreed when they are not busy eating each other.
Grizzlies and Black bears do not, and AFAIK, cannot.
