A bear in Boulder, Colo., may have a future as a social media influencer

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A black bear in Boulder, Colo., may have a future as a social media influencer. The city's Open Space & Mountain Parks team use cameras to track wildlife, which take an image when they detect motion. And the bear got interested in the lens. Instead of strolling by, as animals usually do, it tried different poses in front of the camera, taking 400 selfies. Now it just needs to be photographed in the latest couture.

It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
