That's incredibly dangerous. While you can tell adults to stay away, kids are trained to think bears are happy time storybook things could reasonably go "oh bear" and run up and try to hug it.

While I'm in favor of repopulation of wildlife like bears and wolves. You need to have some very careful  management unless you want Jurassic park level 'hamster ball' tours of national parks.

That woman in the back is at the most 10 feet away from a bear that's walking towards her and she continues walking towards it. People are idiots.

Been like 6 confirmed (with pics or video) sightings of several different black bears in Schenectady in the past month... they're getting more bold. And populous.

Look at all those morans.

"Hey look everyone, there's a Bear. Let's all rush at it and surround it!"

And then the killings began.

Wild animals are certainly to be treated with respect, but really more of those people will die of COVID than near attack.

If you are old enough to have graduated high school, and have no clue as to how fast a bear can run when he wants to, either you or your school district have failed miserably.
And before anyone starts with "It's a black bear. They are more afraid of you, than you are of them". Obviously, the woman is not afraid of the bear, at all. That bear doesn't look awfully afraid of people. I would choose to treat it as a grazer in the deli, and make sure that I wasn't going to be on the menu.

Gatlinburg in mid-July? Maybe it just hit town and  it's throat was dry so it thought it'd have itself a brew.

If any of them survived, I hope it's the one smart enough not to shoot vertical video.

WTF are you on about?

Nobody is training their kid to go hug a bear. The average kid would lose their shiat if they came face to face with a real bear.

You are correct.

Yeah, probably not advisable but it is a city bear after all. They're used to people and just looking for a handout.

Are we supposed to clutch the pearls over the consequences for people who refuse to take a free vaccine?

Vaccinated Provincetown visitors and community members who contracted COVID last week only reported mild symptoms, or have been outright asymptomatic.
