Interesting idea anyway. Not sure if it will work.

Maybe they got the idea from watching PETA throw paint on fur coats?

Gun related in that this is somehow supposed to protect the bear. Not sure anyone will be safer when eaten by a green bear rather than a black one. The quote from the story that bugs me is

John Toppenberg, director of the Alaska Wildlife Alliance, told the Daily News that coloring the bears may alter their natural behavior.

"Would your interaction with your wife change if you dressed up like a clown?" he told the paper. "Who knows? Maybe it would help."

So they think that by painting a bear green it will not attack people anymore?

Don't put away the Guide Guns yet folks......

KENAI, Alaska — Hikers along Alaska's Russian River may be seeing life-size gummy bears under a new plan to identify problem wildlife.

Officials with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game plan to color problem bears along the river bright shades of blue, yellow, orange and green, using drug-store dye.

"We'll use specific color codes to tell the bears apart and we may do two areas, such as the head and neck and also the rear, so bears can be identified coming and going," said Jeff Selinger, area wildlife biologist with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game in Soldotna, Ala.

Fish and Game will attempt to bleach patches of hair on the bear's body and then brightly color them with dye for easy identification.

The bright colors will allow fishermen, tourists, campers, ferry service employees and others in the area to easily and reliably identify the bears even in low-light conditions.

No rounds as they are self healing. Bullets merely shoot right through them and the holes seal up. Without vital organs or bone you can not slay them easily. Just teeth to get to the squishy goodness.

Life size gummy bears. That's great. Are they flavored too? Or just colored? lol

Interesting article.

It will be even more interesting to discover what happens when one of those marked bears is killed by someone defending themselves from an attack.

Will the gov't reaction involve more scrutiny, or less scrutiny, if someone shoots one of those marked bears?

If and when that happens, we can reopen this topic because it will then be gun-related.

Right now, um ... it's not.

Closed.
