We live in a world where the priorities of some are so out of whack when it comes to animals. These people could care less if harm had come to this woman's family. The issue is that a poor bear was killed.
The only reason some people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory.

Feeding bears

As the story noted - Feeding bears does not end well for the bears.

What a tragedy

if they were polar bears, you could give them a 6 pack of Coke. They like Coke. I saw that on TV.

Animals live lives just like humans.

See Disney.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - President Theodore Roosevelt, 1910

I'm surprised this is the first one. Back in the '50's, all the trouble bears from Yosemite and other parks were brought to Southern California and released into undeveloped areas. The problem is 60 years later, these areas are developed. The local TV stations regularly show videos of bears in pools and spas in peoples back yards. They think it is cute. They have no idea the damage even a small 200 pound bear is capable of doing...
