Identifying bear droppings.

As conversations tend to go around me (in some twisted and illogical pattern) we ended up with discussing bear scat.

Ah, now I remember, the conversation started with the camera mount I recently bought for my motorcycle.  I bought it with the intention of using it on my road trip this coming weekend.  After all, what better way to share your riding experience with other folks than with pictures.  Well, my coworker suggested that the camera would serve a dual purpose when I was going the “Daniel Boone National Forest” since they would be able to tell what happened to me when they found the camera in a pile of bear scat.

This of course reminded me of a joke which is really the purpose of this post.

A wilderness guide is giving his charges some essential
information about hiking in the woods.
"When hiking, let the bears know you are coming by wearing
little bells on your clothing. Also, carry some pepper
spray just in case.
"It is also helpful to learn to recognize bear droppings or
scat.  Black bear scat is tubular and often contains the
remains of seeds, grass, and other plant matter.  Grizzly
bear scat contains little bells and smells like pepper spray."
