Hungry bear rips through RV’s side to enter. See the photo

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.”

Have you ever had a “Bear Encounter of the Worst Kind?” Please leave a comment.

He instructed us to not leave any food out. After setting up our pop up camper and starting a campfire for the evening meal I decided to take a short walk around the campground. A few minutes… Read more »

Our son and his girlfriend were meeting us at a National Forest campground in southern Colorado, with us in our trailer and them in a tent. When the campground host found out it was the girlfriend’s first time camping, he asked if he could play a joke on her. Going along with him, we tried to keep a straight face as he told tall tales about bears, getting her good and scared before admitting that none of it was true. (But we told her not to put any food in the tent anyway!) Fast forward to a couple of nights… Read more »

The bear did that trailer a favor! The owner should have hung a sign on it saying ” Eat at Joe’s”
