over the weekend I saw a great documentary called "Grizzly Man" about grizzly bear activist Timothy Treadwell.
Treadwell, found of "GRIZZLYPEOPLE.COM" a conservationsit group, lived with wild bears in Alaska for 13 summers. On the last day of the last summer, he was eaten by a bear.
I admire Treadwell's interest in saving the bears, but many people interviewed in the film found him to be foolish. Among them was an Alaskan native who said, in his culture, the space between bears and humans is respected, and he thinks it is invasive to "live with the bears".
Treadwell, during his time with the bears, actually touched them and played with him.
I'd beinterested to know tyour thoughts on the issue and if you've seen the movie, what you thin.
