An Illinois woman has been sentenced by a judge to four days in jail for trespassing on a bear with two cubs in Yellowstone National Park. Samantha R., 25, of Carol Stream, Illinois. Dering pleaded guilty to intentionally approaching to take a photo of the wildlife within 100 meters.
This is the legal limit for approaching wolves and bears inside Yellowstone Park, but prosecutors say Dehring continued to take photos when the bear approached her. Luckily, Grizzly ran up to her, but in the end he turned around without attacking her. In addition to the prison sentence, the judge banned her from Yellowstone for a year and fined her $ 1,000 and an additional $ 1,000 to allow her into a wildlife conservation fund.
“Approaching a girl with a baby is totally ridiculous,” said Bob Murray, a U.S. attorney in Wyoming. The unfortunate reason is why Dering is a criminal, not a tourist. ‘
Grislice has killed eight people in the Yellowstone area since 2010, including Charles Mock from Montana while fishing near the park in April.
