Here’s proof that us folks in the U.S. aren’t the only idiots when it comes to wildlife interaction, a man in India was reportedly mauled to death when he tried to take a “selfie” of himself with a bear.
According to an Indie article, Prabhu Bhatara was returning from a wedding with some others when they stopped for a potty break.
Seeing an injured bear, he decided it would be a good idea to get close to it and take a “selfie”.
Here’s the video, that shows the bear chewing and shaking this guy. There was quite a crowd there, but I saw only one person and a dog that attempted to help the poor guy.
If the entire crowd had rushed the bear, chances are good that it would have stopped its attack. The only creature really trying to save this man was a dog.
While the carnage was goin on the fellow passengers who watched the entire act, were busy shooting the incident on their mobile phones instead of trying to rescue him. (maybe they work for the news)
A stray dog tried to fight with the bear but failed to save the man from the bear’s grip, forest officials said.
