Handy Bear Identification Tips – Bears have:
• Four legs.
If you see any creature that matches this description, IT MIGHT BE A BEAR! * Remember, there’s safety in numbers, especially if the other people you’re with are older, weaker and/or slower than you. (Which is probably why sanguinity and grrlpup invite me to go hiking so often.)
* It’s true that not all animals that have four legs and fur are bears, but there are many other dangerous animals that fit this description as well, such as tigers, mountain lions, pika, marmots, and Gila Monsters.**
** Note: Technically, Gila Monsters do not have fur.
