Alaska Woman Tries to Reason With a Spiteful Bear

Charles, you crack me up. Yes, that spiteful bear is seeking revenge!

The bear is definitely not eating the kayak because he's young and small, and has been pushed out of decent feeding territories by older and larger bears, and is thus extremely hungry, and with hibernation season fast approaching desperate enough to try eating the inedible.

Or maybe the kayak smells like human salt & sweat and could be food. Per @1 above.

She sounds like a squawking bird. No wonder the bear wasn't paying her any mind.

Or maybe the bear is simply bored. Or curious about this weird object in his/her environment.

So shrill and whiny.

Teething

I also wondered about her high pitched tone until I read that she was on a solo kayaking trip and had just stopped at the cabin to rest. I'd probably sound pretty whiny too if a bear was eating my car while I was at a remote cabin and worried about being stranded.
"I swam to the S/V anchored in the bay. They did not have their radio on and I feared I would be stranded! The German flagged S/v Caledonia took me and my things to Wrangell where I am trying to repair my kayak now."

Unending Wildfires season, warmer streams and rivers, collapsed salmon populations, not enough food. Yup, no climate change happening here. Keep on demanding drill, baby drill, AK.

if you pepper spray me in the face your ride will get fucked with believe that!

I am with the bear on this one and will ship him 20 lbs of salmon if he can get her to shut up.

The utility of revenge is deterrence.

Being in Alaskan Bear country without bear spray is dumb. I wouldn't have wept if the beat ate her.
