Human beings can’t let animals live in peace. After encroaching upon their natural habitat, we humans make deliberate attempts to harm them.
A distressing video of a bear tumbling down from a mountain ridge is going viral on social media.

Humans are proving not only self destructive but also destroying everything around.
