Bears and diapers

Postby Bruce Deacon » Wed Jul 18, 2012 7:40 pm

Just wondering...I will be hiking with my 9 year old and he wears a pull up diaper when he sleeps. Will bears be attracted to the smell of urine? I am really hoping to avoid having to store wet diapers in my bear canister:)

Bears are attracted to human poop (undigested food and protein), but not urine. Hope this helps.

What about getting a bear proof trash container for outside your house? If a bear can't get the trash then it should be ok. You can get them for under $200 which seems like a decent price to not have to smell hot garbage and diapers all summer or just try to buy cloth diapers which is not smell so much and this article can help you https://www.mothersandmore.org/diaperin ... e-diapers/ to solve your little problem.
