Flirting With Disaster
About 10 years ago there was this viral vid going round of a polar bear playfully swatting a big husky around. Hearts around the world melted and everyone went, “Awwwwww! How cute!!!”. About the same time, the fuggin BBC was up in Churchill with some 16 year old ditz who was a Brit child star or something, doing some crockumentary on the arctic environment. The stupid bitch had a cow when their guides showed up with rifles - protection against the bears they’d be filming. She said that if she got too close to a bear she’d “give it a hug!”
The story is that after the limeys left... the big bear came back, killed and ate a couple dogs and was going after a third when the natives shot him.
I love them too... but anyone that gets this close to one is an idiot that probably has an appointment with Darwin or Murphy...
