Where did a black bear take 400 selfies?
Answer: Boulder, Colo.
OSMP has nine cameras monitoring its 46,000-acre land system in Boulder. Their purpose is to capture wildlife in the area to reveal how they use it, in order to inform efforts for habitat protection. Whenever an animal is detected in front of them, they take pictures, apparently to the eternal delight of one black bear. Of the 580 photos that one of the cameras took, “about 400 were bear selfies,” OSMP tweeted alongside some of the best shots.
