A FED BEAR IS A DEAD BEAR NO-FED-BEAR'
One of the first signs you will see at the bear park in any zoo is 'Don't feed the bears'. This is so true in a bear's natural habitat too. There is an old familiar saying 'A FED BEAR IS A DEAD BEAR'. According the National Park Service, allowing a bear to obtain human food, even once, can result in aggressive, bear behavior. Aggressive bears are a threat to human safety and must be removed or destroyed. Help keep bears wild and safe. Do not feed the bears for any reason!
