They were there taking photos of bears fishing for salmon. They knew the risk and hopefully had bear spray and or a 500 Smith and Wesson. Look at the very last few seconds of video, high tech camera and multiple bear in the creek. That's the chance you take for some photo ops.

This reminds me of one I saw where they had unmanned cameras watching polar bears and their babies. The bears played with the box that the camera was in - and then set it back upright before they left. Awesome!

This was taken on the island i live on. These bears are extremely used to people. They are more interested in the salmon than the humans.
