Electric ‘welcome mat’ gives bears a shock
After bears broke into his outdoor freezer several times this summer, Aspen, Colo. bakery owner Bill Dinsmoor solved the problem by installing an electrified mat in front of the walk-in door. It’s effective on bear paws but wearing shoes acts as insulation. “If I was barefoot or peed on it, I’d get shocked,” Dinsmoor said. Aspen Times.
