This year has seen other fatal bear attacks, though typically involving animals in the wild. In April, a 6-year-old girl from northern Ohio was killed by a black bear while visiting the Cherokee National Forest in Tennessee with family members. A grizzly bear mauled three campers in Montana near Yellowstone National Park in late July, leaving one man dead and two people with serious injuries.

This is precisely wht people should NOT have wild animals as pets or wrestling withe them. I feel sorry for the bear and NOT the stupid ignorant man. The bear did NOTHING wrong..

And it has NOTHING AT ALL to do with this story about a confined and mistreated bear kept in appalling conditions. Shame on the reporter fro throwing that in there. All it does is stir up hysteria over bears. That never turns out well for bears, anywhere.
