    Pity there was no other way. Too bad some people are numbnuts and don't respect the fact that a wild animal is a wild animal. The only fault belongs to the idiots that feed Doritos and shit to these magnificent beasts just for a cheap thrill. Dumb asses! Respect to the rangers and the tough call they had to make. I wouldn't envy their position but I support the decision to euthanize the animal. What a waste. I hate people sometimes. :mad:

    Anywhere there is a park it is inevitable.

    We have tourists posing their children beside Grizzly Bears on the roadside.

    they tried a few things before this happened, a couple of people I know were around this when it happened, but truly a shame

    People never cease to amaze me. The one that always sticks out in my mind was when some idiot thought it would be a cute to get a picture of a park bear "licking" honey off his kids hand... apparently no one told the bear about the licking part and he did what bears do, ate all the honey at once, hand and all.
