Carole Meekins: Positively Milwaukee

Un "Bear" able

Bad News Bears

  • Print

There have been several sightings in Sheboygan County this week. Just enough to make me say, OK, those lovely nature hikes I enjoy may have to come to a halt. I am not sure of the proper protocol of bear reaction.

But I know one thing. If I do, I will probably react with so much panic and fear that I will definitely become dinner. Someone in the newsroom says, you cannot show fear, otherwise you will be attacked.

One person told me when you see a bear you are supposed to stop and wave your arms. Really? Just the thought is giving me heart palpitations.

So for now, no backwoods jaunts for me. I will just have to enjoy my nature exploration in controlled environments. Places with pavement and people. Areas where I am almost sure I will not become lunch.
