Maybe they are paying the medical expenses when those Dam Bears attack those Dam Campers at their Dam Campgrounds.
I don't think so. It's camp at your own risk. Your own your own when it come to those Dam Bears at the Dam Campgrounds.

I feel that this area is for the bears to hunt. I'm not sure if your in season or not.

But all I have is the pup. I'm not completely afraid of bears, just the teeth and claws.

The suggestion was that you upgrade to a hard sided camper if you want to camp where bears are at.

Probably with red rubber sneakers on, so they wouldn't get shocked. These Tennessee Bears sure are smart.
What can you say. They are TVA bears and they are in the electric business. affraid
