Holly Courtier, 38, injured her head on a tree while exploring the park and became disoriented, her family said. She survived by staying close to water until rescuers could located and reach her. When rescuers did eventually track down Courtier, she was so dehydrated that she could take only one or two steps before collapsing. The body of missing hiker Chad Seger, of Asheville, was found Tuesday afternoon in the Shining Rock Wilderness Area of Pisgah National Forest, search and rescue officials said. The body was found in an off-trail area near the Art Loeb Trail. The cause of Seger’s death has not yet been determined. “The overwhelming desire to have a close encounter with a black bear is strangely more powerful than common sense,” Sevier County Wildlife Sgt. David Saxton told CNN. “Many people intentionally feed bears with little regard for the dire consequences to the bears and humans they leave behind.”center_img A woman who filmed herself intentionally feeding a black bear in Gatlinburg, Tennessee and posted the video to Tik Tok, may face up to six months in jail, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency said.
