Western Wanderings; A Record of Travel in the Evening Land, 1874

"On the way we stopped at a very neat little farm house, at the edge of an almost circular cornfield. Nearly the whole crop had been trampled down and destroyed, and the owner informed us that it had all been done by grizzly bears. These animals are very fond of sucking the ripe ears of corn, and will tread down acres in a single night."
