“If it’s a choice between grizzlies and humans, the grizzlies have to go. And it’s time,” writes Bryan Fischer in the blog Rightly Concerned, “Of course there is a simple answer: shoot these man-eaters on sight.” His blog describes itself as “a project of The American Family Association.” The American Family Association says that its original name “was National Federation for Decency but was changed to American Family Association.”
This is a very different approach to grizzly bears than that taken by Troy Hurtubise. Mr. Hurtubise spent years building and personally testing a suit of armor that he hopes will protect him against grizzly bears. The Hurtubise effort is documented in the film Project Grizzly [click on image at right to see the film’s trailer, or click here to watch the entire film]. Mr. Hurtubise was awarded an Ig Nobel Prize in 1998 in the field of safety engineering.
