TWRA: Virginia woman charged with illegally feeding bear in TikTok video in Gatlinburg

Officers charged Kristin Hailee Farris, 21, with a misdemeanor violation after she fed a black bear while on vacation in Gatlinburg.

GATLINBURG, Tenn. — The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency said that a woman from Virginia was charged with a misdemeanor after she fed a black bear while on vacation in Gatlinburg.

Kristin Hailee Farris, 21 years old, from Danville, Va., was filmed intentionally hand-feeding watermelon, chocolate and other food to a black bear in Gatlinburg, according to a release from TWRA.

The video went viral on TikTok, the video-sharing and social media app, and was viewed over 500,000 times.

She has been charged with illegal black bear feeding, which can carry up to six months in jail or a $500 fine, according to a release. Officials said she will be required to return to Sevier County for booking.

“The overwhelming desire to have a close encounter with a black bear is strangely more powerful than common sense,” said Sevier County Wildlife Sgt. David Sexton. “Many people intentionally feed bears with little regard for the dire consequences to the bears and humans they leave behind.”

Colbert Makes Conronavirus Quarantine Feel Like a Vacation (Video)

We’re in week three of this pandemic shut down now and we’re all getting a little bored — especially those of us who might have had to cancel their honeymoons or other vacations thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. But in a funny video Tuesday, Stephen Colbert figured out how to turn quarantine lemons into vacation lemonade by, basically, lying to yourself.

The fake commercial from Tuesday’s episode of “The Late Show” is for a fictional travel company called “Limited Travel,” that promises to help people take the vacation “you didn’t dream about.”

Examples include, “a getaway to your own guest bedroom,” where we’re told we’ll enjoy “four incredible nights in a room where your mother-in-law has sporadically slept.”

Next up, a trip to “your exotic basement,” which is “full of rustic charm, like a concrete floor, some pumps, and exposed asbestos insulation.”

Next, the cells people who wanted a beach vacation to “put your feet in the sand at Cat Turd Beach,” AKA a litter box. And for those hoping to get some golf in, there’s always a game played at Low Pile Links, where you can get in “a round of rebound golf, and then relax at the 19th hole,” which turns out to be a living room couch.

Visitors to their own houses can “get to know the colorful locals,” in this case a young girl complaining that she’s bored.

Watch the clip, and enjoy “your home away from home, inside your home,” below:
