All I will say to these concerns is we’re just past peak haggis rutting season here.

drop bears!!
I forgot about drop bears.
We don't see them around here so much, so they rarely come to mind - but I would always wear PPE when visiting areas where they frequent.
Luckily, like so many Australian dangerous wildlife, we don't have them over here. The worst thing we have to contend with is laser kiwi.

I don't know how office works do it. Being at a desk 8 hours a day is killing my back. Especially when you add another 4 hours for homework and study...

Well, the bears are quite easy to handle. To quote a Montana bear notice:

QuoteQuote:
In light of the rising frequency of human/grizzly bear
conflicts, the Montana Department of Fish and Game
is advising hikers, hunters, and fishermen to take extra
precautions and keep alert for bears while in the field.
We advise that outdoorsmen wear noisy little bells on
their clothing so as not to startle the bears that aren't
expecting them. We also advise outdoorsmen to carry
pepper spray with them in case of an encounter with a
bear.

It is also a good idea to watch out for fresh signs of bear
activity. Outdoorsmen should recognize the difference
between black bear and grizzly bear poop. Black bear poop
is smaller and contains a lot of berry seeds and squirrel fur.
Grizzly bear poop has little bells in it and smells of pepper.

I can't think of a place where I don't see people as a bigger risk than the wildlife.
