WATCH: Harlan County man tries to feed bear, is almost attacked

You know what’s a bad idea? Feeding bears. A Harlan County man learned that lesson the hard way earlier this week.

Jonathan Shelton decided to test his luck on Black Mountain recently, opening his car door as a bear walked by and asking if it wanted food. Not surprisingly, the bear did, lunging at Shelton as he extended his hand. Luckily, he was able to get the car door shut just in time:

Shelton told WYMT he filmed the incident to bring awareness to how comfortable bears have become around people and didn’t actually have any food with him. Except, you know, his flesh.

However dumb this attempted PSA was, it is a good reminder NOT TO FEED BEARS. Not only is it dangerous, it’s actually against the law in Kentucky, with fines up to $1,000.

      I like to say gobble gobble right before I shoot a turkey. Man up puss cakes. Those innocent animals are there to feed us.
