Scot Stone's Passion of Animal Photography
April 8, 2020
I am asked so often, "Are you afraid of being attacked or killed by the bears?", while guiding the bear viewing trips in Katmai National Park or on Kodiak Island. My answer is a simple "No." My answer is always the same, "Is it the car wreck, the plane crash, the shooting, or the bear we are afraid of?" No, to most all of us, it is death that drives those fears. The reason I am not afraid of the bears nor anything we face is that I'm not scared of death, I have lived a life that most would could only dream about in my almost 45 years. I say it often if I died today I've been blessed.
