    Somewhere along the line with your car some kid dropped a double bacon triple onion ring cheese pickle with extra sauce burger with FRIES on the floor. Most of it was picked up.

    Wild animals are unpredictable.. even black bears can be lethal.

    This just happened in an area of the country I visit almost every year.. shocking to say the least and took place on an island.

    Hunters in a recent Montana grizzly attack said it was bear spray that prompted the bear to stop the attack and leave the scene. It was also educational to note that one of the guys (both of whom were armed with elk hunting rifles) said he had bear spray but did not know how to remove the 'safety' so he couldn't get it into the fight.

    Note to self.... Read the instructions and learn how the safety works.
