When you see a wild animal, is your first thought to take a selfie with it?  It turns out that's dangerous, and the desire for bear selfies has one Colorado park closed.

It's not just Facebook friends and Instagram followers who are looking at your wild animal pictures.  The US Forest Service takes a peak sometimes too, and they've issued lots of warnings lately about the need to knock off the selfies that have bears in the background.  A wild bear would rather poke you than like that pic, and he'd poke ya good.

Near Denver, they've closed Waterton Canyon for the first time ever because too many people were getting in there and posing with bears in the background.  New York has been cracking down on tiger selfies too.  I think salmon selfies are still safe here, so knock yourself out with that.

Have we gone nuts with the selfies?
