Just real leery about hiking alone with my dog, even with bear spray.
Incredible to be able to photograph a lion cub in S. Africa! (Of course I knew it was a lion, not a dog
Yes, definitely something to consider, not just how your dog reacts to the bears and other wildlife,but the other way around as well.
Can't say I'd risk it, myself, but then, I've never been to Africa or Alaska, so you're much more adventurous than I am. And if you're a hiker, you have to hike at some point...
I wish you and your little pit bull well...may all the bears be otherwise occupied and may you never enrage a moose.
