In his day “Grizzly Man” and “Bear Expert” Timothy Treadwell was the toast of glitterati on both coasts, a favored guest of Letterman and Rosie, a Discovery Channel regular, a friend and soulmate of Leo Di Caprio. “Common sense will tell you that this man knows infinitely more about Grizzly bears than anyone.” That’s Hollywood screenwriter Robert Towne (Chinatown), who had been also active in Treadwell’s animal rightist group named Grizzly People.



“I want to live with them and go with them and not carry something that will hurt them. I mastered a way of interacting with them with body language that enables me to be in extremely close contact with them” sighed Treadwell to a mesmerized Letterman while a guest on his show. “Grizzly bears are really just big party animals. I discovered that singing soothes these bears.”...

You know how this is going to end, but it's a good read.

Yeah, out here we routinely play Enya music and smear ourselves with patchouli oil in order to demonstrate our non-violence toward bears. :rolleyes:

It's like the old Indian adage said, "He who sings to a grizzly bear will one day be coming out of that grizzly bear's ass."

I suspect that the bears like Enya best after supper.

Yellowstone National Park Follies

There is actually a book by the park historian, who is also a lawyer, about fatalities in the park.

Some are right in your vein, like jumping into a boiling volcanic pool when you're drunk, others are just bizarre, such as the time a woman was attacked and borne off by a grizzly and her companions identified her as the likely victim by a piece of her lip left in the ruins of her tent.



Two side bars:

1. A home video shown on TV, where the guy's last words on earth while feeding bears as his family looks on from the motor home are "Honey, where's that other loaf of bread?".

2. An avid hiker/camper told me this one:
When in grizzly country, you should wear little bells on your pack and bootlaces to announce your presence so they won't be surprised, and carry pepper spray in case the bells don't deter them enough.

You can tell which type of bear you are around by examining the scats; grizzly scat is often full of little mangled bells and smells like pepper spray. (By the way, they found grizzlies LOVE pepper spray, they will roll in it when used like Raid Yard Guard).

Aw that video clip is so not true. Bears are notriously bad dancers and even worse singers.
