Youtube video: Ignorant human being putting his life and bears lives in danger Brooks Falls Alaska 2018 08 09
Brook Falls in Katmai Park, AK. There is a viewing platform safely elevated for tourists to watch the bears feeding on salmon which is the point of view from which the video of the idiot was taken.
The man was part of a group of three people who NPS said entered a closed area of Katmai National Park & Preserve in Alaska earlier this month. Explore.org's popular Bear Cam captured the man as he waded into water knee-deep while five bears fed in the river nearby. After snapping his selfie, the man remained in the river for approximately 90 more seconds, taking photos and observing the bears before he returned to the shore.
It's not clear if the bears, who were feeding at the time, noticed the man.
People watching the webcam did notice the man, though, and they contacted park rangers to report his behavior. Rangers made contact with the man and are finalizing charges against the group, whose identities have not been released.

The guy’s white tee shirt would have made for good contrast had the bears bloodied him.
Meant to put in an edit that the first paragraph in the article above is mine.

Well done, sir. Had a I mouth of something to drink it would have been projectile ejected.
love these nature cams
2. If you do poke the bear, see rule (1).
Looks like at one point he was trying to catch a fish. Perhaps he wanted to try to lure the bears closer.
At least he won’t get charged for feeding the bears.
They shouldn’t charge him with a crime for that.
But ALL of his insurance (life, home, auto) should be canceled. That guy is way to risky to insure.
No worries. He will eventually wind up winning a Darwin award. Stay patient my friends....
Oh wait thats what hes full of.
What a fool. He’s very lucky the bears wear busy feeding.
What was his reward for such a dumb act? Did he win a Malt Liquor Beer or a Juul E-Cig?
Even the bears thought this moron was worthless. Salmon good, selfie human tasteless.
Next time he tries it I hope one of the bears will have just eaten. a crappy-tasting salmon.
Those Bears All have Salmon Vision.
Apparently this was not this idiot’s day to die. Prediction: He will eventually meet his death taking a selfie.
