What a dumb bastard.
Authorities looked through the moron’s camera and saw an 8 minute session where the hiker got closer and closer to the bear WHILE THE BEAR WAS EATING!
The bear obviously interpreted this as an animal stalking his food cache. This is all part of the Doctor Doolittle mindset of people who think they can “communicate with animals” by sending out their great karma into the ether.
The Daily Mail has the story.
