The hiker who risked a year in jail to save a baby black bear he encountered on a trail has opened up about his deed, saying he would do it again. Photographer Corey Hancock was hiking a scenic trail in Oregon when he came across a frail 3-month-old baby bear Monday night. “I didn’t have a choice, I wouldn’t have left it out there,” he told Inside Edition. “He seemed to be abandoned and dying. He was hardly moving at first when I walked up on him. I thought he was dead.”
Thankfully, the authorities decided NOT to prosecute.
