A lesson for tourists to bear in mind

Bear May 2, 1998
Web posted at: 11:36 p.m. EDT (0336 GMT)

SAN FRANCISCO (CNN)-- Fisher, a 455-pound California black bear, put on quite a show at a demonstration sponsored by Yosemite National Park and the Folsom Zoo. It took less than two minutes for this average bear to destroy a cooler and eat the food in it.

The performance bears out a lesson that park officials want tourists to heed. If you don't store food in the steel, bear-proof lockers or in Backpacker's Food Cans, you must bear the consequences.
