View from the North 40: Maybe we have fallen down a rabbit hole

I realized two things this week about the often adverse relationship between animals and man — one thing because of the lack of headlines and the other because of the wealth of headlines.
First, both Yellowstone and Glacier national parks had record numbers of people visiting this summer, but we hardly had any headlines about people getting injured or killed by wildlife. A couple tourists got injured in Yellowstone, but I just don’t recall and cannot find anything about injuries in Glacier. The two human deaths caused by grizzlies this year happened outside national parks.
