The Discovery channel has been running ads for “Grizzly Man – A Life Gone Wild”. Doing my usual “play on the laptop and watch TV”, I google on this and find out a few interesting things. Now, let’s go back to the ad. It airs with a nice shot of Mr. MountainMan saying “I came here and protected the animals as best I could. In fact, I’m the only protection they have out here.”
Ok…here’s the biggest problem with that. This is what I was able to find on google:
death was as sensational as his life: Having presumed he could live safely among
the grizzly bears of the Alaskan wilderness, the outdoorsman and author (Among
Grizzlies)–along with his partner, Amie Huguenard–was eventually killed and
devoured by one of the very animals to whom he had devoted years of study.”
These animals ATE you! How much protection do they really need????
