Little Neophyte BS: Bear Encounters - Got Any Good Stories? (110* d) Bear Encounters - Got Any Good Stories? 06 Jul 01

Recently I went camping near Algonquin Park. They said to be careful about our garbage because there were lots of bears around this year. The usual spring hunt was cancelled. As we were leaving the camping grounds I went to dump off our garbage into the bear proof dumpster. Right beside the dumpster was a big black bear just a couple of yards away from me.  I was looking down and did not see him. My friend yells out 'Bonnie bear!!!!'  I looked up and there he was right in front of me. Guess he was hoping I would walk right up to him and hand him my garbage.
He was timid though, so I did not toss him the bag.  I backed up instead.  If he was really unhappy with my decision I would have tossed the garbage to him with pleasure but I had time and space to back up and dive into the car.  Boy my heart was racing.

Have any of you guys had bear encounters or some good bear stories you know of?
