A University had advertised for two biologists to help in their mammalogy department, specifically with a group of captive grizzly bears. They had only two applicants - a beautiful young women biologist and an older male biologist.
The mammalogist in charge of the project knew that not everyone can handle working with such fierce creatures so he decided to test their skills with the bears. The two hopefuls followed him out to the bear pen.
He first asked the young women to show him what she could do.
She entered the cage, stripped down to her bikini, and the largest bear walked up and nuzzled her bare legs.
The astonished mammalogist then said to the old man, "Can you do that?"
"You're darn right I can," said the old man, "just get that bear out of there first!"
