Horrified mama bear watches cubs go over waterfall and saves them
She would have gotten there quicker but lately her diet has consisted mostly of vegan tourists. Last time I was kayak expeditioning through the Inside Passage, I took silver bells with my name engraved to attach to my kayak, and pack when hiking. The courteous do this so follow on visitors can tell whether the bears are Kodiak, or black bears. Kodiak bear scat has little silver bells in it, and the engraved name is the equivalent to a dog tag.
I also take the Costco size bear pepper spray, I am not sure whether this is self-seasoning, or if it actually works as a deterrent. Watching a bear tower over an 8' hedge trying to find your scent is downright disconcerting, realizing all you have to defend yourself is a hairspray sized can of pepper spray, is down right demoralizing, a bit like bringing a toothbrush to an artillery fight.
