    "Bar Hopping Bear"

    A bar in Estes Park Colorado called Lonigans had a local Bear wander in asking for his favorite brew. When told they didn't carry it he strolled out without a care in the world. This bar is one of my local pubs that I hit often. It's a pretty funny story and if you have one add it in for all to enjoy.

    Probably looking for some meade and obviously disappointed. Maybe should have asked for a honey lager instead!

    DJ, I saw that on the news. The funny thing is that the bar was open and had patrons inside.

    However, I think we currently have more bears in Northern Los Angeles than you guys have in the entire forest there. With weekly reports of bears running between properties and digging through trash in my neck of the woods, it's no longer interesting to hear about. In fact, last year my daughter was in lock down at her school because of a damned bear wondering nearby neighborhoods.

    "350 pounds and, if it stood on its hind legs, would be over 6 feet tall"... seems accurate

    One day, a bear walks into a bar. He sits down at the counter, and the bartender comes over.

    "What'll it be?" asks the bartender.

    The bear says "I'll have a......
    ....

    ...beer."

    "Alright, one beer for the bear. But I gotta ask, why the big pause?" asks the bartender.

    "I don't know," says the bear. "I was born with them."

    So a bear walks in to a bar and ask's the bartender for a beer. The bartender say's "sorry we don't serve beer's to bear's in bars" The bear say's "if you don't give me a beer I'm going to eat that lady over there". The bartender says "go right ahead". So the bear walks over and eats the lady then walks back up to the bar and order's a beer. The
    bartender say's "sorry we don't serve beer to bear's on drug's" the bear say's "what I'm not on
    drug's". The bartender say's "that was the bar
    biitch you ate".

    We all know or should know as mountain bikers that while riding in bear country you should have a bear bell attached to your bike. That is a bell that rings constantly with every bump you hit. This is a forwarning to let a,bear know you're coming. And hopefully it will scare him away before the encounter. These bells are especially important in Grizzly Bear country, as they are far more aggressive towards humans than Black Bears. Which makes it important to carry pepper spray for those aggresive bear encounters.

    It is also important as a mountain biker to learn to read bear scat [bear droppings] to know which species of bear is in the area.you are riding. It's as simple as digging through the skat to determine what they are eating. This will tell you what species of bear is around.

    Black Bear droppings will have different berries and vegetation along with small animal bones.

    Grizzly Bear dropping's will contain larger animal bones some berries and tiny little bells and smell like pepper spray.

    Interesting information DJ.

    But this one time in band camp, I found a pile of human feces and I decided to dig through it to see what type of human it was by what they had been eating. Low and behold, it had bear bones and parts in it. So, the ball can drop onto either side of the court. You don't think bears are wondering if they may get eaten by us when they encounter us?

    In closing, let me just add that I have eaten bear meat. It's awful!!!

    You forgot the part about carrying pepper spray to repel aggressive bears.

    Another sign of grizzly skat is that it smells like pepper spray.

    DJ, is bear poop referred to as scat (like it is for mountain lions)? Bear poop looks more like a big poop pie, IMO.

    Hawg I think Brewtality dug deep and scooped up the right definition of scat. By definition all animal dropping can be referred to as scat. It may may be a little widespread fo categorize and gather all droppings under the same umbrella as scat. But we just have to deal with this crappy terminology.

    You couldn't do a TV show like that anymore. PETA would be all over it. Even with the obviously stuffed bear.
    It would still be clearly glorifying animal abuse.
