a few years back on the cades cove loop road ...where all the really dangerous animals are (the motoring tourist) there was one of the ongoing bear jams ...cars everywhere and the tourist out of the cars harassing a bear and her cubs.....now this ole mama bear hangs out in cades cove regularly and is well known and fairly tolerant of these invading tourist..

one of the "braver" tourist who wanted to get some close up footage of the bear and cubs just kept getting closer and closer until the mama bear growled at him...just a warning to back off...

the warning growl really scared the dickens out of this feller so he threw down his camcorder and took off running.......as he ran away at full speed he did not notice the fallen tree and tripped and fell on it and had his groin pierced by a broken limb that was sticking up from the fallen tree....what a way to end your vacation..
