Orangello is going to love this one.
Let me surmise in case you don't want to read the whole story.
58/59 year old guy from San Diego goes to a National Park in Alaska to hike and take pictures, BY HIMSELF.
Dude must apply for a permit, which he did, and then he must go through mandatory training on the rules and procedures to be allowed in the park. He did.
Part of the training is to SPECIFICALLY stay at least 1/4 mile away from any bears at all times. If you find yourself suddenly closer than a quarter of a mile away, you are to walk backwards very slowly.
Duder is wandering along and gets about 50 yards from a bear that is eating and hanging out, doing bear stuff. He then proceeds to film the bear for 8 minutes before the bear decides he has had enough and eats said dude alive.
Park Ranger shot and killed "a bear" that was seen sitting on the guys gear and eating his supplies, but there is no word if that was the bear that actually killed the guy.
I am kind of finding it hard to feel sorry for the guy here and I think the bear got the shaft.
Your thoughts? (*Except for you 'Gello, we know what you will say.
