Just watched the story of Treadwell the Grizzly Man who was killed last year by his stupidity. Only one person interviewed on the program didn't say anything bad about him. A curator, a native Alaskan, at a museum politiely said he disrepected the bears trying to become a bear and that he did more harm to them they rather trying to protect him. The helicopter pilot that was part of the response team to the campsite after the bear killed him and his girlfriend basically said the guy was an idiot and was surprised he lasted as long as he did.

I agree with the helicopter pilot.

Yes, a very astute observation by the slick pilot. A few years ago, a guy got a great film of a momma griz and two cubs. Right up to the time they killed him. A great comfort to his family, I am sure.

Yep, us humans are on the lower end of the bears food chain. Frank
