Tahoe Weekly has launched a new feature it is calling “Life in Tahoe.” The first installment could be an actual life-saver, as it delivers some best-practices for preventing or managing human contact with bears.

It reports that these two slogans are essentia: “No Food & Be Mean” and “Don’t be Afraid of the Bear, Make the Bear Afraid of Me.” The article presents a list of important steps to take to avoid attracting bears, which are always hungry, and admits that it can be daunting to stay on high-alert. 

“But once you start thinking like a bear it’s easy. Pretend your stomach is attached to your nose and all you care about is eating. After a bit of practice, it will become a habit, you’ll be like the long-time locals and will rarely make a mistake (the bears will let you know if you do).”
