Why not offer that photo on ebay? There ought to be some interest in a freshly plucked bare hare.

A corollary to that is that Mountain Lions tend to regard people on bycycles as Meals on Wheels....

I want to thank you for bearing your soul about that.

Common English mistake. You go to the Sierra, not the Sierra's. If you use the plural of Sierra, then you are going to the Sierra-Nevada, Sierra-Madre etc.

What kind of a bear gets "spun around" 180 by a motorcycle doing 30mph? And what was his he doing down by your crank case and foot? I always though that bears go for the head. Dogs go for feet or at least foot level.

I remember coming around a corner traveling about 60 mph around 10 PM on a hot sultry summer night on my way into Kings Canyon NP and finding a bear in the road. He saw me and ran down the hill crashing through the sage brush. I could hear him through my helmet at speed tearing down the hill! Wouldn't want to hit one!

Despite some of the posts here, I believe that there are no Grizzly bears in CA., you either need to go to Yellowstone or very Northern WA., ID. or MT; or go up to Canada or AK to see them. Tons of Black Bears though.

Have been behind a car that hit a Grizzly head on in Revelstoke Park in BC. The bear rolled a few times and got up and walked into the woods (hump on shoulders identified as likely Grizzly). The car's front end looked like it had hit a truck.
