Quotation:
ROGER POCOCK
A Man In the Open, 1912

"I have been right to home since I located."
"But grizzly bears? How frightful!"
"Yes. They was frightened at first. The coarse treatment they got from hunters, makes them sort of bashful with any stranger. Ye see, b'ars yearns to man, same as heathen done to their fool gods, whereas bullets, pizen, and deadfalls is sort of discouraging. Their sentiments get mixed, they acts confused, and naturally if they are shot at, they'll get hostile same as you and me. They is misunderstood, and that's how nobody has a kind word for grizzlies."
