WASHINGTON COUNTY, Ore. — A young black bear had to be euthanized because it got too used to humans because people would not stop feeding it, officials in Oregon said.
The bear had been seen eating trail mix and sunflower seeds in the past, officials with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, told The Oregonian.
Wildlife experts say no matter what your intentions are, people should never feed bears, according to The Oregonian.
The Department of Fish and Wildlife will not relocate bears that have become too acclimated to humans because they could become dangerous to people later, KTVZ reported.
