So I'd like to go deeper into this. I want to backpack in Lamar Valley in Yellowstone with my wife...How do grizzly bears especially know that humans in a tent aren't food even if they get curious? Serious question. How do they associate a human with danger if you are deep in the backcountry and that particular bear never personally had a bad experience with a human?

They're animals, therefore unpredictable. Bring bear spray, stop analyzing and have a good time. You have a good shot as spotting wolves in Lamar Valley as well.

I think it's an old postcard I saw somewhere and took a pic of it.
