Project Grizzly

posted by Jason Kottke   Nov 18, 2009

The National Film Board of Canada has put Project Grizzly online for free viewing.

In this feature-length documentary, Troy James Hurtubise goes face to face with Canada’s most deadly land mammal, the grizzly bear. Troy is the creator of what he hopes is a grizzly-proof suit, and he repeatedly tests his armour — and courage — in stunts that are both hair-raising and hilarious.

This is not to be confused with Werner Herzog’s Grizzly Man, as the Wikipedia entry for Project Grizzly makes clear:

For the 2005 documentary film by Werner Herzog about late bear enthusiast Timothy Treadwell (no suit), see Grizzly Man.

No suit!
