Cute as he may have been, he was still a bear in a very public place, a dangerous situation for the bear and people alike. After the bear was darted, authorities fitted him with an ear tag and released him some 50 miles away from the university. Unfortunately the bear came back. Or tried. Last week he was killed when he was hit by two cars only two miles from campus. A picture of the aftermath of that little incident failed to go viral. People, it seems, only like memes of cute bears. Not bears that cause injury to motorists.
