    Yeah, Timothy Treadwell did it - fatally. Went up to Alaska and hung out with the grizzly bears in the forbiddingly named Grizzly Maze.

    But this other guy -- I think his name is Charlie -- he hung out with grizzlies and black bears in Alaska too, right in his backyard. He would invite them up to his house and feed them. I saw it on Animal Planet. He did it for 15 years, got nipped a few times but nothing serious, and he's still alive to tell the story. His downfall was not the bears, but Alaska Law Enforcement. Feeding the bears is illegal.

    I don't know about you, but this bear mania is catching. I'd like to go up to a kodiak bear, feed it, and shake its hand. Anyone with me?
