it was not the ratio that i have trouble with it was the statement about black bear mothers and there cubs.that is the part that is not correct. and you are right it is serious stuff. there is so much wrong info out there that it makes me sad when info is given out by people meaning well and it is not correct

the point i want to get out is that the old ways of dealing with bears are not working well any more .the amount of attacks is increasing.and we all should have a proper strategy in place, proper being the operative word..
