Looking both ways before crossing the street, using your blinker to signal in traffic and watching where you're going are all examples of just plain good common sense. But basic common sense seems to be running in short supply among some folks in the Lake Tahoe area.
It's gotten so bad that the Forest Service has had to issue a public announcement to curb the problem. What's the problem, you ask?
No, really, people are taking selfie photos, posing with wild bears. "People have been rushing up to the bears to take selfies and videos with them," Lisa Herron, a public affairs officer for the Lake Tahoe Basin said. "A bear will come and whole mobs of people will charge up to them to take photos."
Herron added that some people are even darting across area highways if they see a bear photo op on the other side.
