  • “Since Smokey opened my eyes to fire safety years ago, I've learned a ton from just chatting with bears."”

  • “You'd think the idea of a large brown bear in jeans and a ranger hat would be very effective in reaching a demographic mainly composed of crazed arsonists and lightning strikes, but I have my doubts."”

  • “That irresponsible bear has led to our nation’s single-minded focus on preventing forest fires, when the real threats to American woodlands are the nefarious Sirex woodwasp, emerald ash borer, and hemlock wooly adelgid."”
