A resident of Alexander City, Alabama, recalls her visit to Yellowstone National Park when she was six years old. "My brother was going to the restroom. It was a log cabin there at Yellowstone National Park, and he ran into a bear, and he came running back into the cabin. And, mom and I were just getting out of the car, and he was going, "A bear!", and mom was going "A bear!". She ran all over me trying to get into the car, and my brother had to pick me up by the seat of the pants and threw me into the car also."
