    In light of the rising frequency of human/grizzly bear conflicts, the Alaska Department of Fishing and Gaming is advising hikers, hunters, and fishermen to take extra precautions and keep alert of bears while in the field. The department has posted the following notice:

    We advise that outdoorsmen wear noisy little bells on their clothing so as not to startle any bears.

    We also advise outdoorsmen to carry pepper spray with them in case of an encounter with a bear.

    It is also a good idea to watch out for fresh signs of bear activity.

    Outdoorsmen should recognize the difference between black bear and grizzly bear faeces. Black bear faeces are smaller and contain lots of berries and squirrel fur. Grizzly bear faeces has little bells in it and smells like pepper.
