Anyone have any idea if bears, or other woodland creature would be attracted to menthol cough drops, just curious?

My Vote is yes they are. Koala bears have been known to kill people for their menthol cough drops.

Anything with a detectable odor runs the risk of attracting critters, cough drops included.

I don't think they would be more or less attracted to menthol cough drops than anything else. I'm mostly familiar with brown bears and they seem to either ignore or pounce on food (be it ours or theirs) depending on their mood.
