…It is unclear whether the soldier was equipped with bear spray, or if their unit supplies the spray to all of its troops. A packing list for students at Alaska's Cold Weather Leaders Course, the region's premier school training soldiers to survive in the area, does not include bear spray…

My father was in the USAF and served at a radar outpost near Point Barrow, Alaska. He said several times polar bears wandered through the camp!

My cousin who lived in the Pocano Mtns of NY. Said some people would go out their front door to get in their car. But went back in and locked the door. A bear or bears would be lounging on the porch. They had to wait until the bear(s) moved on to get to their car.
