Grizzly safety

Knut Peterson, When Alaska Was Free, pg. 73: "Books by the dozens have been written about grizzly bears. Some of them will tell you that the grizzlies are absolutely harmless. But, in so doing, the authors only succeed in exposing their ignorance. If you prefer to believe the authors of these books, that’s your business. I’d like to advise you to change your mind." (My friend Knut was mercilessly mauled by a grizzly in 1949)
