    …sometimes a bear is not a cigar.

    The young couple on their honeymoon were about to spend the week camping in Yellowstone, but first they had to listen to the ranger’s orientation speech. He was particularly emphatic about bears. “They’re a protected species, so we’ve got lots of them, but they’re still dangerous. Don’t approach them under any circumstances. And don’t try to outrun them; they’re faster than you are. And climbing a tree won’t help, either; they’re better at it than you.”
    The nervous groom asked what they could do about it.
    “Well, some people stop by the gift shop and pick up wristlets or anklets with little bells. Sometimes if they hear you coming, they’ll move off before you get there. You can also get cans of pepper spray in case you surprise one. Oh, and be on the lookout for fresh bear scat; that’s a sign that they’re around and you might want to leave.”
    “What’s scat?” asked the bride.
    “Bear droppings. You can tell what kind of bear it is by what their poop looks like. The smaller ones, black bears, have scat that’s kind of firm and roundish, like dark ping-pong balls. The really dangerous guys, the big grizzlies, have softer, flatter, lighter-colored droppings, kind of like cowpies, except they usually have little bells and smell like pepper.”

    “And we’re hoping that a few of us larger species survive before you humans kill us all for food, trophies, or folk medicines.”

    I’m with you on this except, food? Who on earth would eat a bear! Some animals were meant to be food (I believe) and some are not.

    I know, that’s how I feel. But bear organs are considered to have medicinal properties and are harvested for the Asian market. Poaching in such things is an organized international business.
    A recent National Geographic article detailed the wide-spread capture of migrating songbirds for food across Europe, Africa, and Asia. And “bush meat” (wild animals, including monkeys) are considered delicacies in Africa suitable for serving the in-laws.

    I have eaten bear on several occasions and it’s not that bad if it’s a young bear that has been properly processed. Older bears make great sausage.

    I’ve eaten bear, bear scrapple at a missionary’s house in Alaska. In some places, you eat what you can get.

    I’m pretty sure I approach all animals this way: trying to keep in mind what THEY must be thinking of ME.
