Trivia:

A self-proclaimed "eco-warrior," Treadwell became famous for trekking to Alaska's Katmai coast to commune with grizzly bears. He would routinely get up close to the bears to chant "I love you" in a high-pitched, sing-song voice. The mauled and partially-eaten bodies of Treadwell and his girlfriend Amie Huguenard were found near their campsite. See more »
