Bears are deadly.
Well, they have killed 16 people in North America this decade. So they’re not as deadly as bees. Or lightning. Or domestic pets. Or centipedes.
But still: killers.
It is widely known that takers of selfies are brave. They laugh in the face of danger.
So it is no surprise that the latest selfie trend is the Bear Selfie (ahem, #bearselfie)
Taking a selfie with a bear is now so popular that park rangers from the Taylor Creek Visitor Centre in the US have told USA Today, “We’ve had mobs of people that are actually rushing toward the bears, trying to get a ‘selfie’ photo”.
