The Bear and the Tick

Which is scarier, the bear or the tick?

Once Upon a Time…

It’s a beautiful spring morning, the birds are singing, the dew is still fresh, you are present, breathing the damp, forest air and enjoying your morning walk.  When all of a sudden you turn the trail and there is a big black bear, back on, walking down the path minding his own business. You freeze and try to remember your survivor skills so you can figure out what to do.  The bear gets a whiff of your scent and takes off running into the woods. Phew!

The End

The bear attack rate is about 11 attacks per year in North America.

Once Upon a Time…

It’s a beautiful spring morning, the birds are singing, the dew is still fresh, you are present, breathing the damp, forest air and enjoying your morning walk.  While walking along, you lightly brush up against a piece of grass and a tick latches on. Except you don’t see or feel it so you keep walking, ignorant that there is a tiny critter crawling up your leg, looking for a nice spot to latch on.  Suddenly, the tick bites into your flesh, but again, you are clueless because you don’t feel the tick bite and continue to enjoy your morning walk. The tick drops off and you are none the wiser.

But it’s not The End because you slowly start to get swollen knees and knee pain, have no idea where it came from and go to the doctor thinking you have arthritis even though you are only 32.  But you don’t, it’s lyme disease living in your body wreaking havoc.

We are unsure of tick attack/latch rates, however, there are approximately 32,000 reported cases of Lyme disease from ticks in North America per year.

So, let’s ask this question again, which is scarier, the bear or the tick?
