California resident Timothy Treadwell’s fascination with grizzly bears was like no other, and it’s his passion for the not-so cuddly creatures that got him into environmentalism and documentary filmmaking in the first place. It all began when the blonde-haired outdoorsman started camping along Alaska’s Katmai Coast at Katmai National Park circa the summers of the 1980s. Photo credit: Lion’s Gate Films / Discovery Docs
