A bit skeptical, I am, of the bear's behavior and the human's behavior. Reminds me a bit of the 2005 film, "Grizzly Man".

Oh, it's certainly possible. I never underestimate the lack of common sense amongst tourists.

From complete seclusion in the wilderness, totally focused on a dragonfly, to jumping like I have never jumped before! So I figure if it works for me, the bears should do the same.
Hey, At least it wasn't pepper spray.
