>>> A Yellowstone tourist was caught on video walking toward a grizzly and her cubs. Now she'll spend days in jail for it. The woman from Illinois was sentenced Wednesday in U.S. District Court to four days in jail and one year of probation after she pleaded guilty to charges related to the incident, according to court documents. The tourist was also ordered to pay $1,000 to the Yellowstone Forever Wildlife Protection Fund, the nonprofit partner of the national park, as well as other fines and fees.
I've been reading comments about this incident for the last hour. According to public opinion we should have staked her out, covered her in bacon grease, and filmed it while the bears consumed her while she kicked and screamed in agony. Yea she was stupid, but the world is full of stupid people doing stupid things every day.
4 days is a little light — 1-2 weeks would have been better and lifetime ban from national parks in addition to the $1,000 fine
She also had to pay $1,000 community service payment to Yellowstone Forever Wildlife Protection Fund. I guess she also had some court cost and legal fees, and a trip back to WY from IL, ouch! That adds up to a fairly expensive oops. Not everyone has money like you. Lifetime ban from the parks would probably have been meanless to her. The jail time wouldn't mean much to me. I'd be doing my time in a mental hospital

Bear injures Sumpter man
During a phone interview on Monday morning, Nov. 29, Beckner said the knuckle of the middle finger on his right hand, the one he used to punch the bear in the eye, was still sore.So was his shoulder, where the bear briefly bit him.
It warmed up to the 40s, then 50s, a couple days after the snow we had, and Bernie just had to come out of the den. Dropped back to 23 that night. I'm hoping he went back to bed.

Bernie is getting a little too bold.
