The story of Donna Munson’s tragic death last week is a sad one. She was mauled to death by a bear at her home outside of Ouray.
The 74-year-old woman had been feeding bears on her 40-acre property for almost a decade, despite repeated warnings that she stop.
Bears, it turns out, don’t care how soft your heart is or how much you appreciate them. They care primarily about food and will attack people who get between them and their dinner.
It is sad she was killed but please do not feed the wildlife.
