My latest article on the West Glacier black bear, this one encompassing the uniqueness of his life and the tragedy of his death, along with lessons we could learn about bears as a result.

My friend Allen Piche has written and just published a book about his experiences feeding wild black bears at his home in British Columbia. When a larger than usual number of black bears were killed at a nearby lake resort for trying to obtain human foods, Allen's feeding was blamed...until all of his bears returned alive and well. I read an early copy of this book prior to publication and I can't recommend it highly enough! Well-written, well-researched, and thorough. Includes amazing insights into peacefully getting along with bears and references to some of my own writing and conclusions.
And here's a link to one of my earlier posts about Allen for a brief overview of his story:
