You know Grizzly bears are in Yellowstone which is one of the biggest tourist locations in the US. And yet when looking it up, they result in only about one injury every 5 years. According to this the chances of being attacked by a Grizzly bear in Yellowstone is 1 in 2.7 million.

I know you're gonna say, "Well this is somewhere else! Not here in WA!" but if we're gonna make decisions we need to look at similar situations. And the data shows they're not as big a threat as y'all are making them out to be.

Be respectful, be aware of your surroundings, and you'll be fine. Nature isn't some human exclusive playground where anything potentially dangerous to us needs to die.
