Wyoming law enforcement searches for a dumb tourist who approached grizzly bears while trying to take a photo in Yellowstone National Park.
Yardage shot earlier in May by another tourist in a parking lot at Roaring Mountain inside Yellowstone – shows an unidentified woman holding her phone as she stands near the female grizzly bear, according to the New York Post.
The grizzly appears poised to attack the woman, charging at her before turning away as onlookers reacted in shock.
National Park Service rangers do not yet know who the woman is, but are investigating her for not obeying rules to stay at least 100 yards from bears, Yellowstone park officials said.
“You don’t have to tell us who you are, but tell us what you know,” park officials said on Facebook, alongside a photo of the woman walking away.
On average, there is one bear attack each year in Yellowstone, park officials said.
Three people were killed by bears in separate incidents inside the park in 2011 and 2015.
