A lot of stupidity takes place in Alaska in the summertime. Much of this is happens to tourist, who come up here with fuzzy illusions and get charged by “cute” moose or lost on steep hiking trails that they have no business hiking in the first place (some dude was just rescued on Mount Marathon last week. Please! The trailhead warns against recreational hikers. It’s a tough mother of a mountain).
But today’s stupidity was performed by an Alaskan, who darned well should have known better.
The story in brief: A guy drinking at a church picnic out by Elkutna Lake (drinking at a church picnic??) fed a bear BBQ and was later mauled by the same bear.
Duh! Like what did he expect?
|Help! I’m training for a marathon! Please feed me BBQ!|
Here’s the story from my old alma mater paper, the Anchorage Daily News.
