Grizzly Stone Pile

From Folklore of Mount Shasta:

 "That is why the Indians about Mount Shasta will never kill or interfere in any way with a grizzly. Whenever one of their number is killed by one of these kings of the forest, he is burned on the spot, and all who pass that way for years cast a stone on the place till a great pile is thrown up." - http://www.siskiyous.edu/shasta/fol/nat/grizzly.htm
