    Hiker killed by bear he was photographing

    A southern California man killed by a grizzly bear in Alaska's backcountry was shooting photos of the animal that killed him just moments before the attack, a National Park Service official said Sunday. The bear that killed Richard White, 49, was still with his body when rangers found him in Denali National Park on Saturday, the official said.
    The San Diego resident had been backpacking alone for three nights when he was mauled to death by the bear, according to a park service statement.
    Photographs found in his camera revealed that White was watching the bear for at least eight minutes near a river before the attack.
    "The bear was generally unaware that he was there until the last couple of shots, then his attention turned," park spokeswoman Maureen McLaughlin said.

    That amazing and beautiful animal is dead because that idiot entered his habitat with no respect. The rules are there for a reason, it isn't Jellystone. If you can't respect the animals while a guest in their home stay away. Go watch Animal Planet on tv.
