A bit of trivia. Black Bear attacks are very rare. Quite a few more people are killed by Moose. Maybe they're pi$$ed off about "Bullwinkle" being cancelled.

I've got animal stories. I used to be a photographer and with a national park nearby, I used to run into the park all the time for photo ops.



I saw a moose about 100 yds. from the roadway, munching in a bit of muskeg that had dried up over the summer, so I spent the better part of two hours inching my way closer and getting him used to the sound of the camera. With patience, I was able to get to within about 25-30 feet. A German tourist, thinking I had just walked straight out and plunked myself down, did just that and spooked the moose, who ran literally an arms length past me into the bush. I was so adrenalized that I walked over and belted the tourist, who had no idea what he had almost caused.



My bear story is mountain biking in Jasper. I came over a rise and started down the other side, which was pretty damn steep, when I saw a grizzly and her cub at the base of the hill about 30 yds away. I bailed on the bike, which bounded down the slope and cartwheeled into the pair. I ended up off the trail tangled in a bunch of spruce trees and watched the two bolt off into the bush. Just when I thought it was safe to climb down and see if the bike was rideable, momma pops out and has a poke at the bike, hopping up and down on it and bending the crap out of my frame. I left it there and walked the 10 km back to my campsite instead.

No, it just doesn't have the same "ring" to it.
