the sad thing is the bears are forced to come into urban settings in search of foods.

Note to Secretary of the Interior, Sally Jewell, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service. National Park Foundation board Sea World, and anyone who has absolutely anything to do with our majestic, magnificent, sentient wildlife: Hire more people like Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation's Commission biologist Adam Warwick!! This bear is one of the luckiest bears ever!

What a brave a selfless act! What a wonderful human being. Wishing you well, and be safe Adam!
