What I have noticed is that everybody just has really different reactions to the notion of risk. True.

I live next door to and frequently walk through the, eh, "ghetto hood" as you call it (we "conservation types" call it an "underserved neighborhood".) What constitutes "underserved?", aren't they getting enough of my tax dollars in "free money" now for sitting on their butts doing nothing?
and I don't go around expecting attack at all times. I don't go around expecting an attack either, but I'm prepared for the potential of such an encounter, and I'm ready to respond to it with the degree of force warranted to preserve my safety. It may not occur...great, but if it does, I'm ready.
Not every person (or bear) on the planet is trying to kill me today. True, but it only takes one of either to ruin your whole day.
I think I mentioned this before, but on my big hike across PA I had total strangers chasing me down the road to hand me a muffin and a glass of iced tea and apples for my horse and to warn me to BE CAREFUL! of the terrible people out there. I never said there weren't good people (or animals) in the world. I'm glad you had favorable experiences on your trip. I hope all your future trips all pan out as well. The irony was a little bit nutty.
Nobody sets out for a fun day hiking through the woods thinking that today could be my last day on earth...

I actually dont think we are all that far off on the topic as I do fully understand why shooting a bear that is acting in an unexpected and aggresive fashion is more often the not the only option. I just dont happen to think that its the norm for a black bear to act that way so not in favour of shooting every bear that happens to come through the yard."
Hi Carol,
I don't advocate shooting an animal as a "first resort" measure if there are other means available of making them go away peacefully. I was only referring to when they exhibit agressive and threatening behavior, and unfortunately leave you with no "back door" out of a bad situation. When you are "painted into a corner," and you are being viewed as either a threat or food (really doesn't matter which to them,) then your options are somewhat limited. The old saying "Either you're fast, or you're food" comes readily to mind. I wouldn't choose to kill it indiscriminately, but I cerainly wouldn't consider being it's victim, (or meal,) as much of an option either.

Right, but these same cartoons were removed from the forum a couple of years ago because of copywrite issues.
