Camera “Attracts” Bear to Kill Rutgers Student?

Maybe I’ve heard it all? And isn’t the claim that because students were taking pictures of a bear with their cell phones, it pissed off a bear enough that it decided to kill one of the photographers? Doesn’t that go against the claims by most that bears want nothing to do with humans and run the other way? According to some, you would think the bear would have come closer only to pose sweetly for pictures, perhaps cuddling up with the young men, not killing one of them.

According to a Fox News report, the camera made the bear attack, “The police report said that the young hikers attracted the bear’s attention by taking the nature shots, according to the The Record.

“They stopped and took photographs of the bear with their cellphones and the bear began walking towards them,” the police report said.”

But wait! We are ALWAYS told that bears run the other way. What was wrong with this bear? I’ll be waiting for the excuses.
