Never let an animal pre-flight your aircraft for you
A Bear attacked this Super Cub while it was parked in a remote area in Alaska.
The pilot had not cleaned out the inside after a long fishing trip and the Bear picked up the fish smell.
After a thorough pre-flight outside, the bear needed to get inside to finish. Being too big, he decided that the only way in was to use his claws and teeth.
The pilot had two new tires, three cases of Duct Tape (Duct tape use number 1001) and several rolls of cellophane delivered to repair the Cub so he could fly it home.
You do not have to outrun an animal chasing you, you only have to outrun the other guy.
