  1. This hippy got exactly what he deserved. He went out there at the absolute height of bear season to become one with nature… and now he is. I keep reading quotes like "Julien was such a gentle soul" and "Julien was a beautiful human being." Well, now he's a beautiful layer of winter fat lining the interior of a grizzly. It's so zen.
