It would be interesting to have that group banded and sexed (male vs. female). Apparently their mother has some unique genes.

I have run into many bears while backpacking and they have always run off as fast as the could into the roto, or at least paid absolutely zero attention to me. This includes a mother and cub I ran into last summer on the Gregory Ridge Trail.

The best way to avoid a bear attack is to take a buddy that you can out run. Ha just kidding. I have used the bells before but wow they drive me crazy. I now just take a rescue whistle and blow it so often. If I see a bear I really blow on the whistle the bear will usally take off. Lucky you dont really have to be on the look out for mountain lions there. THAT is the animal that I am scarred of. The silent killer. They like to attack from behind.

The bear also raises its own children. It doesn't expect someone else to.
