If there's one thing I found out after going to Alaska, it was...that they have a lot of bears.
Apparently, it's a bad enough problem that someone has invented the bear-proof trash can.
And at any park or campground, you'll see numerous warnings telling you not to leave any food out, so as not to attract the bears.
I must admit, it was a little unnerving sometimes to go down a trail and have to worry about encountering large, potentially dangerous animals.
Luckily, all of my bear encounters in Alaska were of a nice, friendly, cuddly nature.
At zoos and animal reserves...
Or from a very, very safe distance.
However, in case I did have a "bad bear day", I would know exactly what to do. Because of helpful posters like these.
