Everything That Had to Go Wrong for "Grizzly Man" to Meet His Demise

Timothy Treadwell, the Grizzly Man who spent 13 summers living with the bears, was part activist, part actor, and mostly mystery. His dreams of Hollywood stardom never panned out, but you could argue that his life story is something straight out of a movie. Actually, he's been the subject of a few documentaries, the most famous being Werner Herzog's Grizzly Man.

    Well...sorry that he passed away BUT respect nature. The bear doesn't want to cuddle or hug or be friends. He weighs alot, has extremely sharp teeth and wasn't interested in shaking hands...he wants food, get out of his way or he will take you down.

    He just kept pushing it and pushing it ! Good God, putting your tent right by a large trail used by the Bears when they are trying to finish getting fattened up to hibernate is absolute insanity !! Then going out in the darkness to confront the bear!! I agree with one of the commenters in the video. It was NOT about filming bears, it was about making the story about him injecting himself in their lives !! It is too bad the girlfriend was killed ! And very surprised he lasted 13 years before being killed. He just pushed it a little too far ! If he had flown home, bet he still would be alive today. PS, remember that EVEN humans will eat other humans if they are starving, i.e. the Donner Party. So the two bears were clearly not prepared to hibernate and very hungry and decided to eat these two who kept harassing them ! Think how you would feel if every time you turned around, some idiot was following you saying "I love you, I love you, I love you!" Day in and day out for weeks. Well maybe the Bears said as he blocked their trail, we are done with this clown ! I would not have killed the bear, i would have let him digest him and then Grizzly Man would have actually become part of a bear, unless Tim was too must waste, then he would have just been Bear shit on the ground !

    Most people nowadays are completely out of touch with nature. There are only handful of people (tribes/communities) in the world remaining , who are exceptionally good in coexist in a nature and do understand it since childhood (in some of the native communities in Africa and elsewhere). Nevertheless - Have anybody ever heard of any of those people, who really understand nature to it's core and are able to exist in nature without any modern equipment - to be trying to be "friends" with lions, bears or any other predator like that ? I did not and it is probably for a reason. They can stay alive in a nature, but they do respect these animals. Treadwell simply did not respect anything and paid a high price for that. He was probably mentally ill.

    I watched the movie about him, it’s fascinating the ignorance he showed toward the probable behaviour of one of the worlds most powerful and aggressive predators. Being an animal lover myself I can understand his need to want to build trust with these bears and having had largely 13 unscathed summers up there with them, it’s understandable that he believed he was bulletproof but these are like anything on earth when hungry and desperate, they become unpredictable and emotionally detached. Treadwell was as fate would have it, lulled into a false sense of security which allowed him summer after summer to feel he was a part of their habitat and their primal instincts. This was always going to be a story that ended like this. It had to.

    9:11 "He believed that bears identified the smell of people with poachers" ...Which is just further evidence that this guy was a loony with absolutely no scientific merit to any of his so-called 'work'. If he was right, then trying to become friends with the bears would only lead to more of their deaths in the future as they would lower their defenses and poachers would kill them anyway. If he was really concerned about them being killed, then Timothy should have been trying to _convince_ the bears that all humans are poachers.

    One thing that is missing here, but I have read about, was the recording. Apparently, the tape contained Treadwell talking to the bear, then yelling and screaming. His girlfriend, now in the tent, alone, at night, in the rain, totally lost it, and the rest of the tape is her screaming hystericaly. This poor woman. I've heard only a small part, and the recording is utterly unnerving.

    It’s a tragedy it happened. Timothy struggled with mental health issues, and I think that contributed. But overall, I think that the humans were ultimately at fault and it’s unfortunate that innocent bears had to die simply for acting on their instincts.

    He took his self-given role as bear protector/facilitator/family member to an unrealistic and dangerous level, if there is a realistically safe level of such behavior. Yes, he did some fairly amazing things in being tolerated by the bears, and by not getting eaten sooner. Learning about the bears didn't teach him much about surviving with them, in the end. He put a tent directly into a portion of thick brush and trees that was known to have grizzly bears hunting throughout. He was delusional regarding his "relationship" with the animals, it got him killed, though some believe that he was covertly suicidal. Maybe he had the antisocial personality gene and, subsequently, had no real fear. It's hard to say with somebody like him. One thing is sure. He died in one of the most gruesome ways you can, and so did the woman next to him. They were in pieces, in the bear's stomach. The bear was old, one that had lost much of its social characteristics, was hanging around after most of the others had gone into hibernation. It was as feral as a bear gets, and it ate both of them, alive. Don't go messing with grizzly bears, they didn't get that name for being cute.
