Just the Facts

It has come to my attention that another blogger (Conor O'Farrell of "Frank & Conor's Bad Advice in the Morning") has compared me to the late self-styled Grizzly Bear "expert" and bear snack Timothy Treadwell, suggesting that I too could be a meal in the making.  I'd like to take this opportunity to clear up a misunderstanding. Although many people have been attacked by bears and an average of 2.25 people per year have been killed in the U.S. by bears during the last decade, no one has ever been reported killed or eaten by an Idyll-Beast.  They seem to have discriminating palates.  Although there are reports of kidnappings, rescues are more frequent, with the Beasts allegedly carrying accident victims or fallen climbers to relative safety.  As Director of the Idyll-Beast Research Center, part of my mission is to educate the public about these little known creatures.  In the unlikely event of my being attacked I promise to do my best to video tape the event, and would be happy to allow Conor to narrate the footage.  It is not my intention to harass wildlife, nor do I reccomend that others do so.

  1. Maybe Werner Herzog can do the narration for the next Idyllwild Video! Add a touch of continental class, a little gravitas.
