    I wouldn't be surprised if that particular photo was doctored, but here in British Columbia there are all kinds of problems like that one. We're crawling with wildlife and have tons of national parks. Every year there are bad accidents with tourists trying to get too close to bears, elk, moose, etc. for a photo or feeding them, or whatever. I guess city folk just don't have a clue......

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Uh, those aren't accidents. That's Darwin's Theory in action.

    I used to visit the Copper Harbor dump to watch the bears before they shut it down. One time I was watching an average sized black bear- about 150 lbs. when 2 Tech toots (local derogatory term for Michigan tech students) pulled up and got out with a loaf of bread. Their idea was to take a picture of one guy handing the bread to the bear. As the one dummy walked toward the bear he commented that it was "just a little bear" I then told him that the average size of bear in fatal black bear attacks was around 150 lbs., right about the size of that one. He sure back-peddled fast.
    I'm a certifiable tree hugger. (it's a poor mans way of determining DBH before cutting the tree down)

    Allen, don't take offense. Wild animals attack experts too. But there is a high proportion of tourists who are unfamiliar with the wildlife here and do lots of risky and foolish things.

    When I lived in Calgary, a cougar killed a woman in nearby Cochrane (closer to the mountains), and she was an experienced outdoors person. I don't think all city folks are naive and unintelligent. I do think that a lot of tourists from all areas come to visit the flora and fauna or come for hiking and skiing here and aren't acquainted with some basic safety procedures like getting close to animals to take photos.
