Grizzlyville : More than ever before, bears and human beings are coming into conflict as rising members of campers and hikers explore the backcountry, hoping to reconnect with nature. Despite popular misconceptions, bear populations are on the rise as well, and it has never been more important for people to learn how to coexist with these fascinating and potentially dangerous animals. Some experts believe that most "bear problems" are caused by humans, and that the animals should be left alone. Others argue that the rising incidence of nuisance bears and their attacks is related to a decline in bear hunting and to the animals' decreased fear of humans. These are just a few of the controversies that award-winning writer Jake MacDonald explores as he takes us on face-to-face encounters with the three species of bears in North America - grizzlies, black bears and polar bears.
