Okay, I’m ready to admit- the internet was a bad idea. Turns out giving everybody the opportunity to reach the masses with their words, pictures, and videos wasn’t necessarily a responsible thing to do.
This lady thought she was being cute by posting a video of a wild bear that she’s “trained” to close her front door, but I’m not buying it. The video is definitely real, but she’s trying to pass off this reckless behavior as a cool thing for people on the internet to ‘enjoy’ and I won’t stand for it.
Maybe that’s a little dramatic, but I think that the majority of you will agree with me that training a wild bear to do stupid tricks isn’t a good thing. She’s most likely feeding this bear to do her silly little tasks, and that will ultimately end up getting this bear killed in one way or another.
“Occurred on November 2021 / Highland Lakes, New Jersey, USA “I live in NJ and in a secluded area of the mountains. I befriended many bears and became part of their ‘clan’. This bear quickly learned how to close my front door with a little coaching from me.”
She’s probably just ignorant, but I just had to call this crap out before some Zoomer who has just moved into a mountain town recently decides they want to try to tame their neighborhood’s local bear. DON’T DO IT.
