I hope you came out of it OK crazymamma.

Friends of mine had a black bear ram in to the side of their car while they were driving up the highway to northern Ontario ... it did some nasty damage to the car doors ... they said the bear was only stunned and wandered back into the bush.


Oh we were all O.K., just shook up a bit if you know what I mean. No harm done. But I have to say while we were sitting in the car waiting for the bear to go off the movie Cujo kinda crossed my mind.....

It is amazing how stubborn and fearless of humans bears can be or become, and I am not the least bit surprised that the honking of your horn didn't scare it away.

I worked in a mobile bush camp in BC for 6 years and had a boat horn and a rifle in the truck for protection of my crew from 'potentially dangerous' wildlife. The first attempt to get a bear to move from our camp or the area we were working on would be a few blasts from the boat horn, the next step would be to fire a shot in the air ... the third step would be to fire a warning shot above the bears head. Many times I had to go to the third step, as the bear would often just go out of view and wait. However I only ever had to shoot one nuisance bear that tore up an unhappy campers tent that had food in it, it wasn't the bears fault but I could not risk the bear returning for more.

I guess my point is that bears even in remote areas tend not to fear humans The over population of bears in Ontario because of the cancellation of the spring hunt, is putting more and more people at risk from a bear encounter that could lead to a bear attack.
