Maybe the bears are angry about the State Game Commission inviting people to kill them off. Animals are not stupid but some politicians are.

So sad when people encroach on wildlife and aren't educated about avoiding conflict. All the incidents described were defensive attacks. Jogging, getting to close and taking puctures then running and climbing a tree, having food in a tent and no one carrying bear spray are all invitations for attack in bear country. I hope the Bears aren't caught and murdered.

Tourist "yum yum"....... This guy should of read around a bit, bears don't like their picture taken. If you're gonna do it get a good distance lens or get way up high in a tree. [lol]

Duh!! A bear doing what bears and other animals do…protecting their young.
Was this "hunter" (killer) carrying bear spray? Probably not

I gather he does not understand the concept that this was a wild animal?
