Wha??? U dont have to be a hippie to have compassion for what this guy went thru or how his wife is. I think anyone who hikes in any woods knows that theres a danger, especially in Yellowstone. I think the big signs that say 'Dont feed the bears' gives it away. Nobody here is surprised it happened or hating on the bear. It's showing concern for a fellow human being, sounds like u need to practice at it.
On another note, when I hike the mountains I carry a repellent and a knife. I always go with someone else as well, theyre the fodder!
