It has been forbidden to feed bears in Yellowstone National Park for decades. But some stupid people are not heeding the warnings and are doing so anyway.
Feeding Yellowstone bears is a death sentence, for the bears.
Action News Now reported:
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. - Yellowstone Park officials are sending out the obligatory warning, do not feed the bears.
It turns out some people are not heeding that warning and it’s becoming more obvious as bears start approaching more vehicles in the park.
When that happens, they have to take action.
Three people have been killed by bears in Yellowstone since 2012.
Why is it a death sentence for bears that have been fed by park visitors? Because once a bear becomes conditioned to human foods, park officials have to remove and euthanize that bear.
