Men too close to feeding bears in national park could face prison time…

Three men could end up in prison after officials said they left a viewing platform to get closer to feeding brown bears.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office charged three men Thursday after they were accused of going within yards of brown bears at Katmai National Park.

The men were visiting the national park in August 2018 from New Mexico and another part of Alaska. Officials said the park visitors left a designated viewing platform and went into the Brooks River near Brooks Falls, an area known for its bear activity.
