Thank you for visiting.

Visitors to Lake Tahoe this month laugh in the face of conventional wisdom, though. The number of visitors attempting to take selfies with bears in the area has caused the U.S. Forest Service to issue a statement requesting that visitors keep a safe distance from the animals.

“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, told Mashable.

“A bear will come and whole mobs of people will charge up to them to take photos.”

Each October, salmon swim upstream through the Taylor Creek area to spawn. Herron explains that bears have learned the behavior of the salmon and come to the area to feed. So, if we’re keeping score: Salmon come to reproduce, bears come to eat and humans come to take selfies.
