Bears know what they want to eat.
Asleep in the mountains northwest of Boulder, Colo., a teenage camp counselor was awakened Sunday morning by a loud crunching sound.The noise was the sound of large teeth scraping against his skull, he told Denver ABC-affiliate KMGH. A black bear, the teen realized, was trying to pull him out of his sleeping bag by his head."It grabbed me like this and pulled me, and then it bit the back of my head and dragged me," the teen, identified only by his first name, Dylan, told KMGH. "When it was dragging me, that was the slowest part. It felt like it went forever."Fellow staffers and campers were roused by the commotion and tried to scare the bear away as Dylan fought back. The bear dragged Dylan about 10 feet, then dropped him and walked away.
If you ever find yourself in very Northern Minnesota near a small town called Orr, there is a wonderful bear sanctuary nearby where you can watch black bears. Food is put out in the late afternoon (4pm) and you are on a raised deck. Black bears come ambling in - young bears, and mother bears with their cubs. The cubs are sent up high in the trees. One young bear climbed up a tree onto a branch that overhung where we were standing. I literally had a bear 2 feet over my head. If I had a picture of it from a camera (it is still in my head), I'd post it.
It is a bad idea to feed and chill with bears and allow them to become comfortable around people's houses.
They'll just wander through people's yards willy-nilly
