Grizzly BearAfter all these decades, why can't I leave these critters alone? Because I need them. We need them. And they need our help. The grizzlies south of Canada will always be endangered; global warming is shattering their traditional food sources just as it will someday doom agriculture in Africa and Southeast Asia. We are all in this together, muchachos. I cannot dream of telling the annual story of my life without going to the mountain to shake hands with wilderness incarnate, old Ursus arctos. Matter of fact, I'm on my way.
