[pct-l] Scree bears

I like the name, "scree bears" for marmots and wanted to share a term I
learned in boy scouts.  "Mini-bears" are the name for any rodent (mouse,
rat, squirrel, marmot, etc.) that will attack your pack, chew holes in
it to remove food, or bite you.  Mini-bears are plentiful in areas where
the major bears are no problem, such as Kolob Canyon in Zion, and the
San Gabriel mtns.
