Vail woman fends off bear with pillow
VAIL How do you get an angry bear out of your bedroom? (Vail Daily)
Hit it with a decorative pillow.
OK, a pillow is probably not on the list of official tips on fending off hungry predators, but it worked for Vail resident Sally Rebehn when a bear followed her into her bedroom a few weeks ago.
The bear then went into a kitchen and rummaged through the garbage, cupboards and drawers. The bear tasting some chili and some ice cream but seemed to prefer chicken wings from a local barbecue restaurant, Rebehn said.
The only thing we know that it ate every last bit of was Moe's Barbecue, she said.
I think next time I'm in CO, I gotta hit up Moe's!

And she came back for more Moe's. Colorado sure has had their share of bear encounters this year.

It's the economy. I guess it's effecting them as well.
Ok, I'll go set in the corner now...Just my opinion.....
Finally found a reason for the Ignore feature!

Aspen bears are in for a shock
ASPEN, Colorado Bears in search of food are in for a shock if they try to bottom feed from Main Street Bakery.
Bill Dinsmoor, owner of the restaurant, has found a solution to protect his vulnerable food supply locked in an outdoor freezer: electricity.
The freezer was broken into four or five times by bears, but since Dinsmoor installed a high-voltage, low-amp electrified mat about a month ago, he said he has had no problems with bruins.
lol at all your quips!
This is a brilliant idea and I hope more people use the mats so that there are less bear/human interactions. I love seeing bears from afar, but I sure wouldn't want one in my kitchen or bedroom. Note to self: when engaging in pillow fight with an ursine, make sure it's a "decorative" pillow and not some "sham" plain white one. (Pun intended)
