I was listening to a podcast recently where one of the hosts described black bears as ‘large raccoons’ and I honestly think that’s an excellent way to describe them.
They’re always trying to break into things, they rummage through your garbage looking for food, and they can be absolute pain in the ass thanks to partial domestication over the last hundred years or so.
These vacationers found out the hard way that you should always lock your car doors when you’re in bear country. Those devious creatures are smart enough to jiggle the handle and open the door. They’re even ballsy enough to come back and open a second door after you scare them off!
Just don’t be an asshole like the guy in this video and throw a 12 pack of diet sodas at a bear just trying to find some food.
