Pro Tip: When you see an apex predator, don’t try to take a selfie with it.
A man in India was mauled to death by a bear after getting close and trying to take a selfie with it.
Selfies are dangerous, y’all!
I’d ask what this guy was thinking, but… clearly, he wasn’t.
Prabhu Bhatra was driving a few others home from a wedding when he stopped to relieve himself. For some unknown reason, he saw an injured bear and decided it would be awesome to take a selfie with it.
That was a very bad idea.
Prabhu Bhatara, who was returning to Papadahandi with a few others in an SUV from Kotapad where they had gone to attend a wedding, had stopped near a forest to attend nature’s call. He then spotted an injured bear and decided to click a selfie with the wild animal.
Although the others in the vehicle cautioned him against doing so, Bhatara came perilously close to the bear which chased him and fatally mauled him. “Bhatara died on the spot,” forest ranger Dhanurjaya Mohapatra said.
Shockingly, the passengers in the SUV stood there and recorded the attack instead of rescuing him.
Bhatara’s body was recovered later that night.
The nearest forest office was around 10 km from the site of the attack. The forest officials could recover the body late on Wednesday night after tranquilising the bear. The driver’s fellow passengers who watched the entire act, were busy in shooting the incident on their mobile phones instead of trying to rescue him. A stray dog tried to fight with the bear but failed to save the man from the bear’s grip, forest officials said.
“The bear is being treated for its injuries,” Mohapatra said.

WARNING GRAPHIC CONTENT:
It’s unclear if Bhatara was intoxicated at the time, but, we’re thinking that tossing a few back could lead to the same ‘clouding of judgment’.
So here’s the obligatory Clash PSA: Don’t drink and selfie.

Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
We’ve all wondered for a long time, but it looks like medical science has finally determined the problem.
It’s spreading like a plague. For some reason, Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds.
Trump Derangement — and Romney Derangement before that — and Bush Derangement before that are only the tip of the iceberg.
What is driving them so berzerk?
Looks like we’ve found an answer:
A liberal walks into the hospital and asks for an X-ray of its skull. Doctors confirmed what we already feared. Here’s the sad diagnosis…
That’s the ladies’ version. You can get it here.
Don’t worry. There’s one for the guys, too.
You can get the guy’s version here.
