A man who wandered into view of the online Katmai bear camera Thursday, taking a photo of himself close to the national park and preserve’s famous grizzly bears, is drawing condemnation from park authorities.

Video from the bear camera shows the man – wearing a white shirt and chino shorts – walking into water near roughly half a dozen grizzlies, then turning to face the bear camera and holding up his phone to take the shot.

Anela Ramos, a National Park Service spokeswoman, said the incident occurred just before 7 p.m. Thursday, at Brooks Falls in the park's Brooks Camp.
