What motivates someone to spend months of their life looking for and following bears? Serious question – I can’t come up with anything. I feel like most people spend their lives hoping to never come face to face with a bear that isn’t on the other side of a twenty-foot pit and a cage.

I guess someone had to do it or we’d be left without ever knowing what bears are really like in everyday life or how they interact with each other. Of course, we now also have the benefit of knowing what not to do around bears to avoid getting mauled.
