Most people realize that wild animals are not pets and should be treated with respect. That mean tries and avoid taking selfies with them. Especially, if that wild animal is a bear. Let’s be honest bears are not usually friendly. Believe me, Teddy Bears are a myth.
According to the Independent, a man from India found a wounded bear and against the wishes of his traveling companions decided to approach the bear and take a photo with it. The bear did not respond too kindly to the man and mauled him to death.
Turns out India had the highest rate of deaths linked to selfies for the two years between March 2014 and September 2016, with 60 percent of all deaths taking place there, a study claimed last year. Of 127 reported selfie deaths in that period, 76 occurred in India.
Why this is I have no idea.
