Was ist daran so lustig? Ich hab' sie am Alaska-Highway gesehen - 20 feet away ... Bärenmama mit zwei Bärenkindern, Alaska Highway, Ende August 2007 ;-))

Solche Schilder gibt's in der Gegend zuhauf. Aus guten Gründen.

Hab mich schon gewundert, warum Du so lange brauchst, das zu erwähnen. :-) Was daran lustig ist? Witze soll man nicht erklären.

I gave it to my sister from the UK (she finally made the long proposed trip to Berlin) and she is still laughing ...

As a regular hiker in grizzly country (mainly northern Montana in the US), I have seen many grizzlies and even encountered one rather directly on the trail once. One piece of advice that is usually found on a posting like this is to not run from a grizzly. They are quite fast and can run uphill, downhill and climbtrees in spite of rumor and legend to the contrary. This is where my personal experience and advice diverges from that of the more well known experts regarding running from a grizzly. If you are alone, you need to follow the no running advice. In this situation lay face down with your hands clasped across the back of your neck. When the grizzly strikes you or rolls you over, keep rolling back on to your face. Usually they realize you are not food and move on. However, if you are quite certain that you are a faster runner than your hiking partner, or at least faster than one member of your group . . . . . :-)
