Taken by Bear in Yellowstone
Taken by Bear in Yellowstone: A Century of Harrowing Encounters between Grizzlies and Humans | Kathleen Snow
1 post | 1 read
Humans and grizzly bears have been coming into contact in Yellowstone National Park ever since it was founded in 1872. Most of these encounters have ended peacefully, but many have not. In order to most accurately tell the stories of those involved in the more deadly incidents, Kathleen Snow went directly to the source: the National Park Service archives. With help from personnel at park headquarters, Snow has collected more than 100 years worth of hair-raising stories that read like crime scene investigations and provide hard-learned lessons in outdoor safety. A must-read for fans of Death in Yellowstone and anyone fascinated by human-animal interactions.

finally finished this one tonight. I picked it up when I was in Yellowstone last June and read it off and on for months. it was very interesting and thorough. of course there are some sad stories of human/bear encounters that didn‘t end well, but that‘s life. the national parks provide lots of education nowadays to prevent human/bear encounters. I‘m much more prepared as well if I ever surprise a bear in the woods! 🐻🐾🌳
