Even in winter, always be Beary careful and aware when traveling anywhere throughout the bear country. Bears don’t follow a dress code.
If you happen upon a bear crossing the road, identify yourself by talking calmly so the bear knows you are a human and not a prey animal. Asking the bear why it’s crossing the road should suffice. If it answers, because it was the chicken’s day off, the bear has discovered dad jokes. Be careful.
