Did you know...

...that bears hissed? The AP reported this morning that a woman walked into her kitchen in Vail on Thursday and came upon a bear and her cub. The bear hissed at her and swatted her, and she scared it off by yelling and clapping her hands.

Turns out that bears moan, squeal, growl, pop their teeth and hiss when they feel threatened. The bear and her cub are thought to be the same ones that entered another home and ate food off the kitchen counter.
