After settling down, he even ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with his new human friends. A brave man presents a sandwich to the bear. He grabs a loaf of bread and signals the bear to wait till the sandwich is ready. After it’s done, he holds it in front of the bear who gently accepts it, gobbling down the food straight away.
As if this is not shocking enough, the rest of the family remains visibly unbothered by their guest. However, another man carefully puts down the stack of beers, just to be on the safe side.
The surreal sight was shared on TikTok by Kaitlyn Nesbitt, a 29-year-old bridal store manager. She captured this incredible moment in Deep Creek on Thursday. Apparently, the bear always roams around the place and doesn’t harm anybody. Some of the group have experiences in the wild. They advised the others to stay calm without making sudden movements. Although most of them were extremely scared, the brave ones didn’t hesitate to test their luck. Before the wild bear left, the people at the table even took selfies with him.
Although the people were unharmed, they received lots of criticism on social media. This is because feeding bears like this can threaten their own safety. In fact, feeding bears is illegal in Maryland as they start associating humans with food, which can bring trouble to residents.
