    A couple were vacationing in Yosemite. The wife expressed her
    concern about camping because of bears and said she would feel
    more comfortable in a motel. The husband said that he'd like to
    camp and to calm her concerns, they'd talk to the park ranger to
    see what the likelihood of a bear encounter would be.

    The ranger told them, "Well, we haven't seen any grizzlies in this
    area so far this year, or black bears, for that matter."

    The wife shrieked, "There's TWO types of bears out here? How can
    you tell the difference? Which one is more dangerous?"

    The ranger replied, "Well, that's easy, see, if the bear chases
    you up the tree and it comes up after you, it's a BLACK bear.
    If it SHAKES the tree until you fall out, it's a grizzly."

    The motel room was quite nice.
