Canada | Jasper NP ends bear warnings after too many use them to seek out photo ops instead

Jasper National Park has stopped issuing bear reports this summer because the warnings have become counterproductive: instead of taking heed of the reports, visitors actively seek out the animals and sometimes take risks to snap photos.

The discontinuation of reports is an effort to give wildlife space and reduce bear traffic jams in the park.
