I feel sorry for the friends who were with him that had to watch.

None for him.

I recall a similar story out of Alberta back in the 1960s. A tourist smeared honey on her kids hands and then sent the kid over to the bears at the side of the road. She wanted to get a cute picture of the bears licking honey from the hand of her child. Seriously.

Wow.... people truly need to learn the difference between wild animals & domesticated animals.

Unfortunately once first group kills or seriously injures you its a little to late.
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.
