CNN reached out to the woman for comment but has not heard back.
    Gatlinburg is a heavily trafficked tourist area in the mountains of eastern Tennessee. Because of its proximity to nature, wildlife sightings are frequent, and officials have warned against feeding animals because it can encourage them to interact more with humans, putting both people and animals at risk.
    Regulations were put in place in 2000 prohibiting anyone from feeding black bears or leaving out food or garbage in a way that could attract bears, the Wildlife Resources Agency said.
      The regulations apply to a six-square-mile area of Gatlinburg and are intended tocreate a buffer zone to deter bears from going further into the city if they aren’t fed or can’t get into garbage,” 发布说.
      The overwhelming desire to have a close encounter with a black bear is strangely more powerful than common sense,” Sevier County Wildlife Sgt. David Sexton said. “Many people intentionally feed bears with little regard for the dire consequences to the bears and humans they leave behind.
