Summary
Since its founding in 1872, humans and grizzly bears have come into contact in Yellowstone National Park. Most of these encounters have ended peacefully, but many have not. Snow went to the National Park Service archives, collected more than 100 years' worth of hair-raising stories, and tells the stories of those involved in the more deadly incidents
