We found this photo on the Facebook group Ketchikan Nostalgia Sharing. The post message read: “This is what happens when a bear in Alaska wants your leftover bacon.”
Not too reassuring to see this, is it? Luckily, most bears won’t go to this much trouble.
Here’s one comment on the Facebook post:
“My dad brother Jim, Don Vondersmith and his son Aaron and I went moose hunting outside of Vanderhoof, B.C. in 1976 and of course had to have a guide. Up at the camp was the camper he had taken up for his wife and daughter who were assisting him. The camper was destroyed by one of the local grizzlies who had decided there was something in there that appealed to him. He went in one end — through the entire length and out the other end. Don’t leave anything that smells like food or you might have a surprise.”
