A REAL GRIZZLY MAN
Beastmaster: Timothy Treadwell
Animal Accomplice: Grizzly Bears
The Story: Treadwell lived among grizzly bears for 13 summers at Katmai National Park in Alaska. During these trips, Treadwell would film the bears up close, sometimes even getting in play fights with cubs. These interactions led Treadwell to form Grizzly People, an organization dedicated to protecting the bears and their land. Unfortunately, Treadwell was killed by an aggressive bear preparing for hibernation. His work and bond with animals can be seen in Werner Herzog's film, "Grizzly Man."
