It's a really good film by a great filmmaker. Try to find it on Netflix or whatever.

Really a tragedy of an idealistic young man who became confused between his dreams and reality. And then reality ate him.

I remember when this happened.

It's a game of numbers, and his number came up.

Old news but.....
It's a wild animal what the F did he think was going to happen.....bear spray is just hot sause at that point. Fear of man goes a long way to keeping you alive in the wild......and a gun!

We are not on top of the food chain everywhere.........

That's true! Minimum would be a 44 magnum and some say that isn't enough against a grizzly but that is what many Alaskans have according to what I have read. I would have rather used the bear spray than a frying pan!

Following article mentions the guns that were used to kill the brown bear which killed Treadwell and his girlfriend:

https://www.thehighroad.org/index.ph...ccount.153604/

Pages of comments via bottom that URL to include following link for page 2:

Check out the comments at following links:


https://www.datalounge.com/thread/12313216-grizzly-man

https://thedissolve.com/features/mov...s-grizzly-man/

The comments at bottom of following link say that black bears can start to eat you right away if they attack (which they don't usually do in California at least) and that grizzly bears don't usually consume you right away so you can play dead which Treadwell initially tried to do! But that bear which attacked and ate him and his girlfriend was old and hungry and they will eat anything according to what was mentioned in comments at following link as well (it technically was a coastal brown bear which attacked Treadwell but there isn't a differerence between a coastal brown bear and a grizzly as they are basically the same bear genetically and that where they are located in Alaska makes the difference with the coastal brown bears to include the Kodiak brown bears getting bigger because they are by the water and have more protein from the salmon):

Differences between the coastal brown bears and grizzly bears in Alaska:

Default Excellent film

Treadwell was a nut. Given his behavior and the risks he engaged in, he's lucky he got away with it for so long. Seriously, these bears are dangerous, aggressive predators.

Well said! Completely agree! After listening to the audio again at following youtube one can only think of how terrifying it must have been for his girlfriend after seeing the 1000 pound bear kill and drag off Treadwell knowing it would be coming back for her and there wasn't anything she could do about it!:

I remember this from the news, and also saw this film a few months ago. Pretty crazy stuff. The guy definitely had a few screws loose.

What a way to go.

Saw the film a number of years ago. Dude was mentally ill. Tragic way to go just the same.

He(and his GF) died horribly but, what do you expect? Living with massive predators. WTF?

Great documentary - seen it several times years ago.

For me and what I do with rattlesnakes ... there is a line that I simply DO NOT cross.

Have to have RESPECT for wildlife that can kill you.

That just sums it up nicely! Well done!

Since this thread already got necro-bumped, might as well post this story that happened earlier this week, to further prove that some people are complete morons:

Bear bites off man's arm after he jumped into the animal’s enclosure in a drunken state to feed it milk

His brother blamed the owner of the bears, saying, "For drunken Russian men, the fence needs to be higher."

Seriously, you can't make this stuff up.
