Bear Misconceptions

leave a comment »

When people go on hikes, they typically become paranoid about running into a Mama bear. But a recent study shows that American black bears have only killed 63 people in the past hundred year. However, 88 percent of those attacks happen when bears are on the prowl, or on the hunt. Rarely do hikers get attacked because they they seem to be a threat to a mother bear. Bear attacks always seem to make the news and has become universal fear among Canadians and Americans alike because the news like to report and stress bear attacks. The article is interesting and can help to ease paranoia of being attacked by a bear in the woods.
