I can only imagine the stupid things that any police department has to deal with on a given day, and telling people to STOP TAKING PICTURES WITH A DEAD BEAR is probably not near the list of the craziest things a police department has to tell people.
That being said, the fact that they had to issue this statement is kind of funny.
Don't stop to take a selfie with the dead bear on Hwy 8/CR-26. Multiple calls received of people stopping to take pics. MNDOT enrt.
