Bear Attacks Can Happen Anywhere
Bear attacks can happen anywhere!
Bear attacks do not only happen in national parks. Yes, national parks seems to be the most popular place, and probably the most reported place for bear attacks. The number of bears in these parks, plus the number of people visiting, are probably the reason for this.
But bear attacks can happen anywhere. This was the case this past week in Pablo, Montana. Pablo is just south of Flathead Lake. A student at Salish Kootenai College was out for a walk, and was mauled by a grizzly bear. Thankfully, he is okay.

Always be on the lookout in “Bear Country.” I have taken to always carrying bear spray anytime I walk in the woods, just to be safe.
