Bear With Me
Young Timothy William Dexter decides that bears need friendly hugs, so he leaves his California home and shoots off up to Alaska, him and his small tent.
At some point along the way, he changes his name to Timothy Treadwell.
Then he goes to tread well amongst and video tape these neighbor bears of his.
He even takes time to revisit the Lower 48 to show school kiddies footage of the cute critters. He tells them all about his new friends, Boobles, Freckles and Mr. Chocolate. The kids adore the idea.
He soon returns to Katmia National Park and the Alaskan wild.
Sitting among a grove of aspens, within feet of a huge boar, he croons to the grizzly beast, "I love you; you love me..."
At some point, maybe toward the end of that particular bothersome song, the bear, some bear, a Freckles or maybe Boobles, or perhaps Mr. Chocolate, decided enough was enough.
So he (or she) tastefully ate Mr. Treadwell.
Don Quixote had his windmills.
Timothy Treadwell had his bears.
And the bears had Treadwell, as well.
