Hungry Bears are Dangerous

One of the most dangerous situations a human being can be faced with is a hungry bear. With the decrease of hunting grounds and food crops such as berries and bark, bears often become more desperate and aggressive as they search for food to feed themselves and their bear cubs. However, this hunger has also triggered an unexpected reaction: bears began to follow gunshots because they realized that gunshots often result in dead animals that they can eat (smart, I know).

Once a bear claims an animal carcass, it becomes very protective of its kill. This becomes a problem when a bear claims a hunter’s kill. By avoiding a bear over a carcass, the risk of attack is greatly reduced by around fifty percent. In general, only the most experienced hunters should ever approach a bear. Families and campers in the woods should help protect themselves by storing all waste and discarded food in bear proof trash cans.
