(WFLA) -- A friendly black bear in Oregon has been euthanized because of its sociable behavior, officials said.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife said the bear had been seen near a popular boat ramp at a lake in Scoggins Valley Park, which is about 34 miles west of Portland, and had become habituated to the area.

"Law enforcement became aware of interactions between the bear and humans after some individuals took "selfie" photographs of themselves and the bear and posted them on social media. Over the past week, officers were called to the same area several times where individuals had left food for the animal," wildlife officials said in a press release.

Local law enforcement officials were called to the area after receiving two calls about the bear and warned visitors to stay away.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
