If you camp... just don't be smellin' like steak

(in all fairness..DNP is slightly larger than the State of Massachusetts).
I was told NOBODY has ever been killed by a Griz in DNP!
We were stopped on one of the visitor buses well within the park and a GRIZZLY jumped out from behind a bush onto the road and walked down the entire length of the bus. Driver never saw it until he jumped. Then...100 yards further down the road...2 hikers...yes we advised them about Mr. Griz and they decided to 'take the bus'.
Vaguely remember something about 100 yard equilateral triangle points
...CAMP at one point
...STORE FOOD at one point
...COOK at one point.
NEVER have all 3 at the same point.
OK...so I guess that I was paying a little attention.
