	In light of the rising frequency of human - grizzly bear contacts,
the Wyoming Department of Natural Resources is advising hikers, hunters,
and fishermen to take extra precautions to keep alert of bears while in
the field.

	"We advise that outdoorsmen wear noisy little bells on their
clothing so as not to startle bears that aren't expecting them. We also
advise outdoorsmen to carry pepper spray with them in case of an encounter
with a bear.

	It is also a good idea to watch out for fresh signs of bear
activity.  Outdoorsmen should also recognize the difference between black
bear droppings and grizzly droppings.  Black bear droppings are smaller
and contain lots of berries and squirrel fur.  Grizzly bear droppings are
larger, have little bells in them, and smell like cayenne pepper."
