A group of hikers headed into a forest with a guide. Before setting off, the guide gave a talk about hiking in grizzly bear territory saying: “Most bear encounters occur when hikers try to be extra quiet along the trails in hopes of viewing wildlife but they accidentally stumble into bears instead. The resulting surprise can be catastrophic.”

To avoid this, he suggested that each hiker wear tiny bells on their clothing to warn the bears of their presence.

“Also,” he said. “Be especially cautious when you see signs of bears in the area, especially when you see bear droppings.”

One tourist asked: “How do you identify bear droppings?”

“Oh that’s easy,” the guide explained. “Its the ones with all the tiny bells in them!”
