Jack Hanna, (CBS) Animal expert Jack Hanna, director emeritus of Columbus Zoo and known TV presenter, I really had to test their skills during a family vacation in Montana on Saturday. Hanna came face to face three wild brown bears and lived to tell the story of “The Early Show” Wednesday morning.
Although Hanna spoke with co-anchor Harry Smith Big Fork, Mont., A black bear was nearby.
Hanna said his day started at two in the afternoon, beginning and end, as his he and his wife walked up to Grinnell Glacier.
“My wife and I are coming down, it comes down, the last one. A young woman, 18 years, and their parents. They were a half hour before us. They came by the way. I have a corner where there was a cliff the wall, and she turns and says, ‘Oh, my God, there are three bears comes from the map, “said Hanna.
Hanna said then you have to give you your space. Hanna is an opening on the grassy hill a few minutes to locate the bears, and like all lined up against a wall, he told them to clap and make noise, as they were told to do in bear territory. But the Bears closed in what happens.
(Bears) around 25, 30 feet away right now. I see a man trying to prove his drive, “says Hanna. Then he showed them how to properly use a can of bear spray or pepper spray.
“The patient is wearing (pepper spray) this in your chest, with his backpack, so I pulled (safety clip) out. I had already turned off. You throw this down, take the safety clip, go well. I said the bear. I did not want the bear to start making trouble or the mother would return, “said Hanna.
Hanna said the pepper spray is something every hiker must carry. It is recommended not to carry weapons, because you might end up doing more harm than good. However, a can of pepper spray works, does not harm people, and makes no serious damage to the bears either.
