"Numerous tourists had been feeding the bear and taking pictures of it, and when one got too close while trying to snap a picture, the bear bit him on the foot, causing a puncture wound."

What exactly did the bear do wrong? No punishment at all for the tourists, in spite of there surely having been signs warning them not to feed the bears? How stupid can you get?

The tourist should have to supply the bear with the rest of the foot.

It would seem their idiocy knows no bounds. I think the ONLY innocent party in this incident is the bear. What a bunch of ignorant bas*ards.
