If you're driving along and come across a dead bear on the highway, just keep going. You don't need a selfie.
That might seem obvious, but according to some tweets by the Chisago County Sheriff's Office, some people felt getting a picture with a dead animal was super important.
The tweets say there was a dead bear on Highway 8 near Country Road 26 Tuesday morning. And apparently authorities kept getting calls about people who were stopping to take pictures.
Yeah. Don't do that.
First off: Unnecessarily stopping your car and getting out is dangerous.
Second: This whole thing is kind of gross.
At least no one (as far as we know ) has tried to give the animal CPR. As the Chisago County Sheriff's Office notes, that has happened before.
Earlier this year, someone hit a deer in the county. When officials arrived, they say they found the driver trying to resuscitate the animal. The sheriff's office advises against that, too.
