The Season 2 episode, Death Over Easy, featured a segment entitled #412: Em-Bear-Assed, which covered an April 16, 2001 incident in the Mojave Desert near Palmdale, California.

The incident involved a man who wandered the desert under the influence of magic mushrooms in order to get in touch with his "inner dog", and had come across a group of furries engaged in sexual encounters around a campfire.

He tried to join into the orgy, but was rebuffed, and then mistook a nearby brown bear as a human participant; he was then mauled to death.

[edit] Reception

The segment was criticized by furries for having depicted furries in an oversexualized light.[1]
