It’s a tragedy that the 65 year old cyclist died at the paws of a grizzly bear in Montana.
The grizzly bear has been an inhabitant of Montana since long before humans invaded their territory. First, it was the Native Americans who were decimated by the encroaching white settlers along with the decimation of buffalo and other species.
This tragedy is another manifestation of what is happening as humans continue their encroachment into native habitat.
