Due to the frequency of human-bear encounters the BC fish and wildlife branch is advising hikers, hunters, fishermen and any person that uses the out-of-doors in a recreational or work related function to take extra precaution while in the Field. We advise the outdoorsman to wear little noisy bells on clothing so as to give advanced warning to any bears that might be close by so you don't take them by surprise. We also advise anyone using the out-of-doors to carry "Pepper Spray" with him in case of an encounter with a bear. Outdoorsmen should also be on the watch for fresh bear activity and be able to tell the difference between black bear feces and grizzly bear feces. Black bear feces is smaller and contains lots of berries and squirrel fur. Grizzly bear s*** has bells in it and smells like pepper.
