Bears Are No Joke

This is why we now carry a gun when we ride. This is right in Anchorage, a few miles from my parents home, right behind the high school I graduated from. I pray for the girl and her family.

You now carry a guy?

That guy must be very skinny for you to be able to haul him around :)

Suddenly all the griping we do about dogs chasing us seems might insignificant!

Actually, he is plump and can't run fast. If a bear shows up, he is the bait so we can get away!

haha! It would be funnier if it wasn't so sad. yeah, dogs are nothing compared for bears.

I saw that in the paper here the other night and wondered if it was in your area. Scary. We do not have to worry about that here in Lower MI but it can be an issue in the Upper Pennisula.
Really a terrible experience and I hope the best for her recovery.
