This was not the bears fault.
How many people express sympathy when bears are killed by putrid hunters??

Tragic. I do have questions about this though-why were they together in this enclosure?

We need to stop allowing wild animals to be forced to perform on tv shows or ads. Realistic computer generated graphics can create all the wildlife you need!

Sad, but when you go into a wild animal that has no way of running awy you take a risk.

Yet one more reason to NOT cage animals for human's viewing pleasure. Leave them to their natural habitat, protect them there with law and regulation, but do not cage that which is born free. A tragedy yes, but one that could have been avoided, as could all such, were we simply to leave nature's creatures where they belong, at home.

pay back is a bitch for all the bears poached hunted for body parts and rugs

Wow, Carol K., you are something else with the "payback is a bitch" comment. The incident was an accident and from what I read, no actions will be taken against the bears involved. I love it when people like you make such fools out of yourself with comments like this, as it would seem you'd prefer to never having any documentaries or movies made involving wildlife. Do you think they are all using REAL WILD animals?

Watch the documentary series on Nat. Geo. hosted by Casey Anderson. He uses his own "pet" Grizzly, Brutus, to demonstrate how dangerous these animals can be. He stresses safety at all times and has explained how quickly and lethal being within "range" of a wild bear can escalate, even when the human does nothing to provoke the bear. He does this to prevent maulings and deaths IF POSSIBLE, as there will always be random "encounters" in nature.
