The Tragic Deaths of Timothy Treadwell and Amie Huguenard

The Tragic Deaths of Timothy Treadwell and Amie Huguenard

Timothy Treadwell's life was on a downward slope full of drugs and alcohol. At the suggestion of the man who saved him from a near fatal overdose, he goes to Alaska to see the bears in nature. Upon seeing his first wild bear, his life changes forever, and he never touches alcohol or drugs again. This is all fine and great if the story had stopped here, but like all tragedies it does not. Tim's love for "his" bears became a deadly obsession, and serves as a warning to others to never cross that invisible line between mankind and wild animals.
