  Marrison Bear Bag System
The goal of bearproofing your camp is to minimize odors that might attract bears, and to set up safe storage areas for food and garbage that are out of reach of bears and are away from your sleeping area.
Bears are very intelligent and some bears are smart enough to know that by cutting the diagonal rope to the tree, they can bring down the food bag.
Bears may still be able to smell the food, but they cannot open the containers.

  Bear bag - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A bear bag is a device used when camping in areas that bears frequent to keep food and perishable items out of reach of the bears.
Lightweight nylon stuff sacks are often used for bear bags but they can be made simply of a large enough square or rectangular piece of cloth or tarp with the food items placed in the center of the tarp and the corners brought up and tied around with rope.
The rope is then used to tie the bag in the air where it cannot be reached from the ground or from a tree by a bear.

 Bear Safety
In reality, fl bears represent a more realistic threat to humans than polar bears, grizzly bears, mountain lions or wolves, because of their rapidly increasing numbers, the extensive overlap of their habitation range with human domains, their increasing familiarity with human beings, high degree of intelligence, excellent memory, legendary strength and fighting ability.
Bear did a quick 180 and trotted off back up the hill (a pretty typical response.) Proving how foolish a 16 year old can be, I ran after him for about 20 feet and snap-shot a photo of his retreating butt, which I still have here somewhere around my house.
Bear bags are large sacks in which you can place all your food and smellables, for either placing in a bear-proof storage locker, or (far more commonly) for suspending from ropes with the bottoms at least 8 feet off the ground and the sides at least 4 feet from the nearest climbable tree-trunk.

 Safety in Bear Country, Bear Facts, and Bear Encounter Stories   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Bears are strong and agile wild animals that will defend themselves,their young, and their territory if they feel threatened.
Please bear in mind that food to a bear equals food as we know it, plus "garbage", wrappers, soap, lip balm, sunscreen, toothpaste, anything with a fragrance (remember, they are more practiced at using their sense of smell than we are).
Bear bags should be at least 10 feet off the ground and between two trees.

 Bear's Tao
Phoenix Bear said that he was calling off their "doing nothing" game, and that they should convene a Bear Council to see if anything more could be done for the little girl.
A full Bear Council is only convened on special and very important occasions, because this means that all Bears of this clan have to drop whatever it is they may be doing, like pillow sliding, no matter where they happen to be located at the time.
T.Bear, our hospital bear, said that the little girl's teddy was a Healer Bear and would keep her well and safe, and that this was something all the other Bears would learn in time about Healer Bears (for Bears have nothing, if not plenty of time).
