It worries me.

I think I am insufficiently afraid of bears.

It seems a that, in a zoo somewhere in Scandanavia, a monkey got loose and wandered into a bear enclosure, where it was mauled and eaten. Ack.

I'm very nearly a monkey! WTF!

I love monkeys and indeed find it sad this happened, but it sounds like nature being nature to me. Please don't be afraid of a bear for being a bear. Most are nowhere near us.

For me, being afraid of a bear because it killed something raises many red flags in my mind. Mostly, one could say "witch hunts."

I don't know if all large predators are threatened with extinction, but I'm sure most, if not all, are. And I can easily say that it is our fear of them that has fueled human hatred and killings of these animals.

I wouldn't worry about being insufficiently afraid of bears. Possibly, you could be insufficiently mindful of their power, as they are strong and predators.

Really, I was mostly joking. I'm not actually afraid of bears, and I hope you realize that I would never advocate harming, or much less hunting them...
