[pct-l] Bear pranks



Monte,
Hot spices probably wouldn't work.  It was confirmed by biologists in
British Columbia that grizzly bears love the pepper in hot pepper spray
cans.  They tried it out due to one dumbkopf who used his pepper spray
device around his campsite, as if he were "marking his territory", and
was later attacked by a grizzly who was attracted to the area.

As a part time prankster, bears can be cheap entertainment. Hang food
as 
advised at any trail, then make up a special bear treat and place 100
yards from tent and 100 yards from hung food. This can be something
like a donut injected with the hottest chinese mustard you can find.
