I totally agree. Tim Treadwell ("Grizzly Man") felt compelled to rub elbows with Kodiaks on Kodiak Island, took great pictures, gave lectures to kids and seemed to feel that bears were warm, fuzzy creatures with whom we could live successfully if only we "understood" them. An admirable goal (perhaps 'questionable' is a better adjective), but Treadwell forgot that bears are WILD animals and treat humans only as would a wild animal. Treadwell was ultimately was killed by one of his "friends," as was the woman who accompanied him. A sad ending, but not exactly unexpected. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grizzly_Man
Regarding Cody, it amazes me that the kid could pack around a .44 Mag and accurately pump four bullets into a charging bear without flinching. Great job, Cody. As Val Kilmer remarked to Tom Cruise in Top Gun, "You can be my wingman anytime."
