Is it worth potentially being MAULED TO DEATH to get a once-in-a-lifetime selfie?  You know what?  Please don’t answer that.

There’s a guy who was visiting Katmai National Park and Preserve in Alaska earlier this month, and he went into a restricted area where five big brown BEARS were eating salmon in a river.

The guy waded into the river to take a selfie with the bears, and he stood there for a minute and a half taking pictures.

On the bright side, he didn’t get MAULED TO DEATH for messing with a bunch of hungry, wild bears.

But on the down side for him, the park’s Bear Cam got a perfect video of him in the river, so it looks like he will be facing charges for going into the restricted area.
