Believe it or not, there have been people who have tried to get close to take a picture with a bear. There have been so many people that have really gotten hurt trying to take a selfie with a wild animal. Unfortunately many have not survived while taken dangerous selfies. So the U.S National Park System is releasing a series of Apps and videos to remind people not to take risks when hiking or climbing to create a great selfie or video.

Here are a few safety tips:

Don't try and get too close to wildlife they like their space and can feel threatened.

Stay on the trails and try not to venture outside of the trails where you could get lost.

Don't try to take unsafe pictures near cliffs or big rocks where you could trip or fall.
