Weather followed by The Natural World
Grizzly: villain, trophy, monster! When white settlers forged across North America, no creature in the new land caught their imagination as much as the grizzly bear. It could outrun a man and fell him with a single blow of its paw. It excited terror, awe, even hatred, and became a symbol of all that was wild in wilderness. Today the tangled thread of man's relationship with the grizzly has taken another twist, for the bear is a threatened species and man its reluctant steward.
