Why Timothy Treadwell Deserved to be Attacked by a Grizzly Bear - ... The bears (grizzlies, brown, and other varieties) found in Alaska are among the largest on earth. Grizzly-human interaction is best done minimally, if at all: the only reason that bears do not react as quickly as they might to humans (considering them prey) is that in their habitats, they have access to plenty of food and they do not consider humans a territorial threat, so the usual reaction of a bear to a human in the wild is mild curiosity, then indifference. This general lack of reaction to his presence lulled Treadwell into thinking that the bears were tolerating it, and then to the ultimately fatal assumption that they were mutual friends....   [tags: foolish, anthropomorphism, danger] 542 words
