As the ads are on I recommend this documentary on channel 5. Should be on demand later on if you've missed it.

After watching 'Gerry Rafferty - right down the line' tonight, I was surprised when Billy Connolly 'broke down' a little bit. He is human too.

This is a lovely program, but slightly different from the story of Timothy Treadwell and his girlfriend.

Timothy Treadwell (April 29, 1957 – October 5, 2003) was an American bear enthusiast, environmentalist, amateur naturalist, eco-warrior and documentary film maker. He lived among the coastal grizzly bears of Katmai National Park in Alaska, USA, for approximately 13 summers. At the end of his 13th summer in the park in 2003, he and his girlfriend Amie Huguenard were killed and eaten by a grizzly bear.[

I read the article (no link) about how they were eaten by the Grizzlies they were living with in the wild. Apparently bears, like canines, eat their prey alive and bears prefer to dine on the loin area first. When the producer of their program arrived on the scene after their deaths he listened to the tapes they'd taken. He stopped listening after an hour of hearing their constant screams.

Local native American folklore tells of when you're in Grizzly territory always make sure you have a bullet left to shoot yourself in case you're attacked.

Thanks for that piece of information. We are about to have loin chops for tea!

What's an eco-warrior?

What's an eco-warrior?

My understanding, and I could be wrong, is it's someone who fights against ecos.
