Bears in Great Smoky Mountains National Park

There are bears, people who want to feed them, and no hunters to thin them out.  When the bears get used to hiker food, problems ensue. 

There are warning signs. 

This is a bag shreded by a bear sitting on top of the shelter a day or so before my stay.

On a related topic, the Standing Bear (hiker) Hostel is located just north of the park.  All the basics are provided.
