Grizzly Bear don’t care

This is why you keep a clean campsite in bear country.

Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle created this mock campsite in an effort to educate visitors (and the Internets) about the risks of camping in bear country and apparently, keeping chicken coops and charcoal grills on your patio. Most people who spend time in the backcountry understand the importance of avoiding risks like those portrayed here but there is something very primal about seeing how easily the bears get into the hard-sided cooler and then proceed to fold it like a grocery bag. Cool, right?

Oh, and it was intriguing to note the narrator’s acknowledgement of “five to 20 grizzlies” in the North Cascades.
