THE BEARS AND I (1974)

Bob goes to live in the northern wilderness and ends up taking care of 3 bear cubs after their mother is killed. This causes problems with the natives in the area as they believe the bears need to be set free or there will be a curse on their land. Bob has every intention to set the bears free, but they keep coming back to him and causing problems. The bears not being free means that tragedy has plagued their land. That is when the government comes in to tell if their plans to make the land a national park and the natives need to leave. It was an interesting enough movie and the bears were pretty cute. It is heartbreaking to watch a story about natives getting pushed off their own land they have had for centuries. I think it’s one that people could try once if they want to. Once was good enough for us.
