Timothy Treadwell

Timothy Treadwell (born Timothy William Dexter; April 29, 1957 – October 5, 2003) was an American bear enthusiast, environmentalist, documentary filmmaker, and founder of the bear-protection organization Grizzly People. He lived among coastal brown bears (''Ursus arctos horribilis'') in Katmai National Park, Alaska, for 13 summers.

On October 5, 2003, Treadwell and his girlfriend Amie Huguenard were killed and almost fully eaten by a 28-year-old male bear whose stomach was later found to contain human remains and clothing.

Treadwell's life, work, and death were the subject of Werner Herzog's critically acclaimed documentary film ''Grizzly Man'' (2005). Provided by Wikipedia
