WILDLIFE ENCOUNTERS — My Sunday story about a female wrangler, her horse and their showdown with a grizzly bear has generating numerous emails from people for a wide range of reasons.
Some are simply glad to finally hear some positive news about people and their encounters with grizzlies this year, especially when the story was positive for both the people and the bear.
Others — and not just the many horse women out there — are bolstered by Bolster's courage, poise and determination.
A few wonder if that horse, Tonk, is for sale.
But I have to tell you, after I interviewed Bolster, I came home for dinner and told my wife her tale. When the tears started rolling down her cheeks, my instincts were confirmed: This is a good story.
