In India. Not smart. Bad result. Sound like he may of had a couple of cocktails. This from the AllOutdoor website with the under one minute video mentioned below.
As if to prove that Americans 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” photo of himself with a bear.
According to the article, Prabhu Bhatara was returning from a wedding with some others when they stopped for a potty break. Spying an injured bear, he decided it would be a good idea to get close to it and take a photo.
Although the others in the vehicle cautioned him against doing so, Bhatara came perilously close to the bear which chased him and fatally mauled him. “Bhatara died on the spot,” forest ranger Dhanurjaya Mohapatra said.
There is a video, which I will embed below… use caution, because it shows the bear chewing and shaking this guy. There was quite a crowd there, but I saw only one person attempt to help the hapless victim. 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 human life was a dog.
