    I wouldn't say they were racial slurs. More along the lines of stereotypes.

    Its a very unfortunate and sad situation only because it could have been avoided in many ways. A RU student too. :-/

    It is a sad story if completely true. It is sad for many many reasons. There is a strong part of me that still thinks something else was going on.

    You're not the first person I've seen question this on the 'net. What is it you fear happened? You don't strike me as the typical conspiracy theorist. So far the facts all point the same direction. Guys hiking in bear country where bears aren't hunted inside an enclosed fence (that I have since learned is routinely maintained), with food on them, followed by a young male bear (responsible for most human attacks), with panicked hikers running and this one guy breaking away from his 4 buddies and triggering an attack response from the bear.

    Re: Black bear kills a man in NJ

    My guess is the kid ran, the bear chased him, and at the wrong moment the kid decided to switch from defense to offense. It's hard for me to imagine a Jersey black bear running down and killing an adult human. (Unless the bear was rabid, in which case, all bets are off.) It's also hard for me to imagine a male black bear standing his ground to fight if a group of humans acted aggressively toward him from the start. Black bears know they're faster than us, and they don't want trouble. Maybe sending mixed signals did the kid in.

    Anyway, call him a citidiot, but what percentage of Jersey college students do you think actually knows how to behave when they encounter a bear? I feel bad for his friends and family. Just tragic misfortune is all it is.

    You make a lot of good points.

    I went to college in Easton Pa. I drank with my friends. We went hiking pretty often for college kids. Jacobsburg and at a stretch we would go to Merrill Creek and do the big loop. 9 times out of ten there was at least one female with us. The places we chose to hike were close to home.

    The fact that 5 college age guys decided to drive a long way without ladies to go for a hike when there are plenty of other places closer is what really made me think something was off. People have been inappropriately making fun of the victims culture. I don't know much about other cultures maybe this sort of behavior in normal for college kids from that background these days.

    Maybe there is a good reason why they chose to hike there. Maybe there was booze involved? Maybe it was a pre mediated murder? I just feel in my gut that something else was going on other than 5 young men went for a walk in the woods and one got eaten.

    Anybody hiking should carry a bear deterrent spray. Especially where high populations are known..

    I always carry my bear deterrent, in .40cal that is..

    Re: Black bear kills a man in NJ

    conspiracy? doubt it. They were in a nice place to hike. people do this all day every day. I've seen the trails. Well maybe the conspired to go for a walk. The rest seems like a tragedy of mistakes to me.

    This is from the record:

    “He loved outdoor activities,” said Sooraj Patel, adding he wasn’t surprised to hear his friend had been hiking. “He was a type of person who brought people together and always took advantage of life to try new things.”

    Re: Black bear kills a man in NJ

    There have been at least 60 documented black bear attacks ending in fatality of humans in the last 100 years. This isn't a one time deal. And that is fatalities, not attacks. There are numerous attacks each year in the US by black bears on humans. Black bears are the one bear where you should always fight back. That often ends the attack. The authorities know if this guy fought back or not based on wounds he received if he wasn't too eaten by the time they found the victim and the bear. Yes, this bear did begin to eat this young man and not just kill him.
