They didn't die well.

Atleast Erwin, altho a semi anti hunter was a conservationalist of sorts, that Timothy was a moron, myself and a couple other guides knew about him about a year before he was harvested(lol) by the bears and at one time had a pool going from his regularly updated website as to when it his website journal wouldnt be updated.
Once a month one of checked it and then, nothing well you allknow why. What gets me is how the discoverychannel and others made him out to be some kind of bear conservationalist, as if he was doing Jane Goodall chimp work. The guy was a treehugger from the city, had NO animal science or wildlife conservation background or training and it pisses me off that alot of folks make him out to be some kind of Dr Doolittle when in fact he was simpley lucky and stupid. Im a huge supporter of fair chase hunting and im glad the bears had a succesful hunt.

I have the DVDof Bear Man, and I've spent a lot of time around the big brown bear of Alaska, much of it in the same areas as Tredwell's misadventure! sad

This guy was a typical bunny hugger, with more gall than brains! This guy was simply a fool of the first order, no other way to say it! He did more damage to the bears than all the hunting that will ever do to the big bruins. He tought a whole population of brown bear that humans are to be approched with impunity. This was the worse theing he could have done, not only for the fisherman, or caribou hunter who comes in contact with any of these bears. The fisherman, or hunter will likelly have to kill a bear he normally wouldn't have to, because of Tim's idiacy. To top this off he made it tough on the people who don't knw the bears in this part of the tundra, are potential killers, that will teach their young not to fear people. Shame on You!

The native people of Alaska have lived around these bears for thousands of years, and there is a "NO-MAN'S-LAND" between the people, and the bears that is not violated by man or bear, and this has worked for all their history together. Tim violate this seperation, and in doing so, re-drew the lines of the NO-MAN'S-LAND of mutial respect, between man and beast. With the NATURAL bear, you can move about him, and him about you as long as you respect each other's space, and live in harmony. The alternative is confrontation, and if you are no careful, the bear wins every time!

Thanks Don, for some reason I was unable the sign in on several of the web-sites I visit after changeing providers. I just got back on this one yesterday, but still can't get some others to let me in. That's not a big deal, as this one and another two are the ones I visit most, anyway.

The treatments went well, and I'm begining to get my voice back a little, and the skin has healed on my throat. I just went to the doctor yesterday, and of course he ran that scope down my throat, and thankfully found nothing of concern. In May it will be one year after surgery, and if I'm lucky and make to the 5 yr mark, I'm out of the woods. I missed a couple of my usual annual hunts, but did make a DRSS hunt in January, that was a real good get together. We even had a couple of the PHs from Africa there, to try hunting in snow, and ice!

Good hunting!

The tragedy is that he got 2 incredible bears killed. I've been fortunate to have 9 close encounters with grizzlies. They are amazing animals.

Not only was he an incredible moron, but, pretty selfish as well. Brick Wall,)

I agree wlfdg!

And thanks for posting the aftermath Don I enjoyed finding out what happeded after the movie was over. I was always wondering what actually happened and you answered my question. As for treadwell, and people like him, they should be banned somehow from doing what he did and exspecially bringing an unknowing person with him that probably had no better judgement then what he told her about the Bears. She probably thought she honestly was going to live with Winnie.
