    I just watched this amazing and beautifully filmed documentary about a crazy, crazy man who lived with Alaskan brown bears and ultimately was killed by them. This film is really interesting. The guy it's about is nuttier than squirrel poop. Check it out.

    I haven't seen the show but I've read about him. I grew up in Alaska and I can tell you that it is a magnet for all kinds of characters and nutcases. The guy you're talking about was one of these, "bears won't attack people, they're our friends," type of guys. Well, in the end he and his girlfriend apparently got to be very close friends with the inside of a grizzly's stomach.

    I read his book a couple of years ago. I think it's called "Walking with Grizzlies" or something like that. The book was awesome! I still have it around here somewhere. He doesn't look to be too loco in it. I haven't seen the movie but I've seen the previews and he does look a little off talking about the bears. I was really suprised when I saw that he had been eaten by one of them, he seemed to know what he was doing and had such respect for the animals.

    Some bears are friendly and won't hurt you. It's the other 95% he should have worried about. At least he won't make this mistake again.

    I heard that the only thing they found of the man was his watch... takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'

    The life and death of amateur grizzly bear expert and wildlife preservationist Timothy Treadwell. Treadwell lived unarmed among the bears for thirteen summers, and filmed his adventures in the wild during his final five seasons. In October 2003, Treadwell's remains, along with those of his girlfriend, Amie Huguenard, were discovered near their campsite in Alaska's Katmai National Park and Reserve. They had been mauled and devoured by a grizzly, the first known victims of a bear attack in the park. (The bear suspected of the killings was later shot by park officials.) Founder of the organization Grizzly People, Treadwell devoted his life to the preservation of bears, co-authored a book with Jewel Palovak, "Among Grizzlies," and educated thousands of schoolchildren about bears. Treadwell also used his charisma and growing celebrity to spread the grizzly gospel, appearing on television shows including "The Late Show with David Letterman," downplaying the dangers of his encounters. But was Timothy Treadwell a passionate and fearless environmentalist who devoted his life to living peacefully among Alaskan grizzly bears in order to save them? Or was he a deluded misanthrope whose reckless actions resulted in his own death, as well as those of his girlfriend and one of the bears he swore to protect?
