Hiker spots a dying black bear on his hike, breaks the law in order to save the bear’s life
Corey Hancock, a hiker from Oregon, was going on a regular walk near the Santiam river when he suddenly spotted a small bear. Corey wanted to take a few pictures of his hiking trail, but it was raining quite hard and he decided to go back. On the way back, he saw the small black bear a couple of feet next to the trail. It was immediately obvious to him that the little bear was dying.
The bear barely reacted and was extremely slim. Corey was convinced that his mother has abandoned him or was shot by hunters. “He was laying on his back”, Hancock said. “He barely moved, he was dying.”
