The average Wyomingite inherently knows to leave our wildlife alone, especially the larger, carnivorous animals like bears. Unfortunately, a lot of our countrymen don't share that level of common sense.
This is wrong on so many levels I may run out of levels describing it. I have discovered videos of some rednecks who were having a picnic that got joined by a very large and hungry visitor and then they did absolutely everything wrong.
If you're anywhere in Grand Teton National Park, it's a good idea to assume that you're potentially being followed by a bear. That's exactly what happened to a runner in the park recently as he shared video of the encounter.
If there's ever an example of being thankful for being in a truck and not walking, it's this one. Brand new video shows a guy in a pickup who realized that a grizzly was running nearly full speed his direction.
It's true that some things never seem to change at Yellowstone National Park, but a new family retro video shows that other things have. It dates back to the 1950's and shows how many tourists used to hand-feed bears.
