Woman Feeds Bear And He Attacks Her

“A Michigan woman who suffered injuries to her arms, legs and back when she was attacked by a bear belonging to a friend said she is grateful to be alive.

Linda Beck of Ontonagon County in the Upper Peninsula said she has been feeding her friend’s bears for years, but she never had any problems with the animals until one of them ran at her.

UPI

It’s a good rule of thumb never to feed a wild beast who has the capability to make mincemeat out of you. There’s always the chance that he might find you more appetizing than the crumbs you are feeding him.

It’s also a good idea never to visit a friend who has bears or any other wild animal in her home.

Unfortunately, the bear was euthanized in the name of public safety. In most states it’s against the law to feed wild bears; the woman who has been feeding the bears should be fined.

Pregnant Lady Hit By Car While Fleeing Bear

“A pregnant woman who was fleeing a bear when she was struck by a slow-moving car said she would honor the euthanized animal by giving her baby the middle name ‘Bear.’

Ashley Swendsen, 26, said she thought the bear followed her more out of curiosity than malice because it kept a distance of about 10 feet Thursday morning on a hiking trail in northwestern Colorado Springs.
 
Swendsen managed to scramble up an embankment and was crossing the street when she was hit by a slow-moving car. Although she was not seriously injured, she was taken to a hospital as a precaution because she was pregnant.”

As the suburbs continue to stretch into formerly wild areas human beings are encroaching in the habitat of bears and other wild animals.

By Ashley’s own admission the bear didn’t behave in a hostile manner, but even if the bear had mauled her he should not have been killed.

The only one who should be punished in this unfortunate incident is the hit-and-run driver

How would the employee of The Colorado Division of Wildlife who killed the bear feel if I killed his child if he trespassed in my backyard?

Ashley was sad to hear that the bear was put to sleep, and to soothe her conscience she’s going to give her baby the middle name “Bear.” That’s all well and fine, but that’s not going to bear that innocent bear back to life.
