    Woman starts feeding birds, ends up with seven bears

    A woman in Issaquah, Washington, found the food she left out for birds was being eaten by a bear. So she increased supplies. Next thing you know, she's got seven of the hungry creatures visiting her garden.

    Wildlife officials could have issued her with a fine, but were able to work with her to trap and relocate the bears, so she escaped any consequences of her misguided behaviour - including being eaten by her furry friends.

    I can understand her kind nature-loving wild-life loving behaviour. The bears look so nice and furry, they don't look dangerous, I know they are, but they don't look dangerous.
    Have you noticed everybody laughs when they show the bears behaviour on television. Everyone thinks it's funny when they show bears raiding people's kitchens!! Thank goodness it wasn't my kitchen, (the kitchens need rebuilding after the bears have left).
    I think she was a very nice kind lady...

    We have people here (Florida) all the time feeding gators. And they do look dangerous! Not nice & furry at all.

    Had to share this here - a cub bear invaded a golf course in British Columbia, did a crazy pole dance with a flagpole, then stole a golf ball. If you look carefully in the background, you can see the little ears of other baby bears watching.

    Issaquah is also cougar territory. You think she would have known better than to put food out.

    It is bear season right now. Just last Wednesday they caught a bear that was roaming downtown Tacoma.
