In that case, that man was in the wrong. If he was actually walking in an area officially designated polar bear territory, then he had no right to trespass in that location. I'm not saying the tourist should have given himself up to it, but I now agree that the polar bear's death was unfortunate since the idiocy of the man lead to its occurrence.

By the way, I heard about two guys who were camping and their tent was attacked by a giant grizzly bear. The first guy whipped on his sneakers and started lacing them up. The second guy says, "Are you crazy? You can't possibly outrun that bear!" The first guy says, "I don't have to outrun the bear... I only have to outrun you!"




I did, my point was it's not unknown for bears to wander into populated territory though.

The Polar Bear's death was very unfortunate. It's always best not to jump to conclusions I find. A lot of animals die through human's idiocy. sad

People hike and camp in remote areas all the time. And you don't need to be in a remote area to come across a bear. For example, there are numerous hiking trails and camps sites officially sanctioned where there is always a possibility of an encounter with a bear, or any other wild animal. Should people all just stay home? There was nothing wrong or illegal in what the man did, but anyone who partakes in these kinds of activities is aware of certain risks like this. However, these types of encounters are rare.

I have listened to a compilation my parents have called Sixties Summer Mix hundreds of times in my life, for as long as I can remember. In that compilation, "Tequila" by The Champs is immediately followed by "Wipe Out" by The Surfaris. I'm currently listening to Steve Hackett's To Watch the Storms on Spotify, and the song "Marijuana, Assassin of Youth" contains what seems to be a medley of oldies... and "Wipe Out" is one of them, which transitions straight into "Tequila"!

This surprised and pleased me a lot! grin cool
