Young bear's tragic end in Oregon

Grief on social media for a young, wild bear conditioned to expect food from humans
Hikers in Oregon on the west coast of the US had grown accustomed to coming across a friendly young black bear - who would come up to them for food, and patiently wait while they took selfies. But park rangers, worried about the hikers' safety, decided to act. They shot him. 

Well, that decision has outraged some hikers and animal-lovers online but wildlife officials near Portland, say they had no choice. Newsday heard from Nadine Drisseq who works with an information group called Bear Smart Washington.
