They Even Had a Bear in the Air

According to the owner of Shinchaya, the bears have been extremely active this year. Around the time he told me this, a bear was killed in the village. That night, it appeared at dinner.

Five times I've met bears in the wild, and five times I've gone home uneaten. I hope that I haven't unbalanced some ursine scales of karma.

I had bear nabe about 2 years ago and haven't been eaten yet ... so I think you're good to go. What I'd be worried about is all the chickens you've eaten in your life. Could you imagine all of them in a raging flock coming after your life?! The bear looks good.
